Vassana Retreat

At the Esala celebrations held on Sunday 9 June, the monks at the London Buddhist Vihara were invited by devotees to observe the vassana period. This is an ancient tradition dating back to the time of the Buddha, when during the rainy season, the monks will be in retreat and remain in the monastery for a period of three months.
During this period, the lay devotees undertake to provide the daily requisites of the monks.
The Vassana period ends with the kathina ceremony to be held on Sunday, 1 November 2017.

The Vihara will be open to visitors at the normal times.

SUNDAY SERVICE

Please note that the Sunday Service will now start at 5.00 pm
