The Hornchurch Buddhist Group was initiated in late 2012 by two local Buddhists, Nandaketu who is an ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order and David Weston who is a member of the wider Triratna Buddhist Community.

Hornchurch Buddhist Group

Meet: Mondays 7.15 to 9.30pm (excluding Bank holidays, Christmas and New Year)

Location: Room 12 Fairkytes Arts Centre, 53 Billet Lane, Hornchurch, Essex, RM11 1AX

Secretary: David Weston

Chairman/President: Nandaketu

Contact: hornchurchbuddhistgroup.org.uk

The aim is to be a focus for communicating the teachings of the Buddha, including meditation, and for the coming together of people interested in the teachings and practices.

It is hoped that in time the group might become a local community of Buddhists linked by friendship and practice, known as a sangha in Buddhist terminology.

It should be stressed however that everyone is welcome to come and participate in the classes whether they think of themselves as a Buddhist or not. Buddhism offers practical and effective teachings that can lead to a happier, more fulfilled life, beneficial to both the individual and the world at large in which they come into contact.

The Buddhist path can be described in three broad categories, firstly an ethical lifestyle, secondly the practice of meditation to cultivate awareness and positive emotion, and thirdly wisdom consisting of direct personal insight into and understanding of the nature of human existence.
