Events on the Wirral
To celebrate its 25th anniversary the Wirral Kagyu Buddhist Group is hosting a series of events at several locations: an illustrated talk entitled ‘Buddhism in Pictures’ and a two part course, ‘Buddhism: The Facts behind the Myths’.
Buddhism in Pictures will explain the foundation of Buddhism, its main teachings and its spread throughout the world. This will be a general talk, useful to anyone who wants to find out about Buddhism. Admission is free.
West Kirby Library: Saturday 17 March, 11.00am
Quaker Meeting House, Birkenhead, Wednesday 28 March, 8.00pm
Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead, Saturday 21 April, 11.30am
The facts behind the Myths will challenge the quasi-mystical interpretation which Buddhism sometimes receives. This short course will explain that it is a very practical religion that is rooted in a realisation of the ordinary nature of reality. The first session will concentrate on core Buddhism whilst the second will explain how these teachings have flowed through Tibet for 1500 years. Admission is £5.00 per session (if possible).
Session 1: Quaker Meeting House, Birkenhead, Wednesday 4 April, 8.00pm

Session 2: Quaker Meeting House, Birkenhead, Wednesday 11th April, 8.00pm
