Buddhism and Meditation in Southampton

Welcome to the Southampton Triratna Buddhist Centre. We have turned a derelict pub in St. Mary's into a beautiful centre for exploring the timeless Buddhist practices of meditation, mindfulness and emotional positivity. The Triratna Buddhist Community is an international Buddhist movement which draws from all the more traditional branches of Buddhism, to provide tools that are contemporary and relevant for those seeking meaning and purpose in their lives. We are a small friendly group here in Southampton and welcome both newcomers and those with some experience of meditation and Buddhism.

What's on while our centre is closed?


With great regret, following recent Government guidelines for minimising the spread of the Covid 19 coronovirus, we have had to close the Buddhist centre for the time being.

Practising mindfulness and loving kindness during times of crisis is ultimately what supports us all to stay emotionally positive and to grow. So the good news is that we have decided to relocate our key events online. They will be accessible through the Zoom site and application with instructions on how to join each event below. We hope this will be a valuable resource for many of you now that we are no longer able to meet physically.

Saturday Sangha morning will resume on Saturday March 28th with the new time of 11am - 12.30pm. This will be open to all and to make a fresh start at this time we will be presenting a sequence of short talks on the Buddha's Dharma (teachings). There will also be a chance to ask questions and discuss these along with a led meditation. We would also like to invite you to send us questions electronically each week. This is a new 'Ask a Buddhist' initiative that we are launching. Questions can be sent via Facebook messenger or by email to dhammavijaya@southamptonbuddhistcentre.org

Please join us for the sangha morning via this link. We're looking forward to seeing you. Remember, we are just a click of a button away so no difficult journeys wherever you are!


Wednesday study groups recommence this Wednesday, March 25th, 7.30 - 9.30pm. If you are not yet involved but would but would like to join our foundation study course online, then please email dhammavijaya@southamptonbuddhistcentre.org 

Life with Full Attention is our new 8-week course in mindfulness and begins on Tuesday April 21st 7.15 - 9.30pm.

We'll send you a Zoom invitation as the course approaches.

Finally, except for courses, all our activities run on a donation basis. For us to survive and flourish in these difficult times, we need your help. Please consider giving a donation via PayPal here:
