What is Manchester Buddhist Centre?
Manchester Buddhist Centre has taught Buddhism and meditation to thousands of people since 1977
The Centre is bringing an ancient tradition alive in the modern world as part of the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly Friends of the Western Buddhist Order).
We are well known for our friendly and informal style of teaching, exploring what Buddhism can teach us in the modern west.
I saw people who exemplified Buddhist principles — not as a theory, but as something alive
