Bodhicharya UK Centre Project

The Bodhicharya UK Centre Project is for manifesting the heart aspiration of a physical Bodhicharya UK Centre, where the beneficial activities of Bodhicharya can find a home and base in the UK to deepen, grow and flourish after all these years and long into the future.



Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has given the following advice and guidance about a Bodhicharya UK Centre that includes:

  • It being outside a big city
  • It being in a pleasant location where people will enjoy visiting
  • It having good transport links so it is easy for people to visit
  • It having a residential capacity to help it be self-sustainable

The collective vision for a Bodhicharya UK Centre has included the following:

  • A permanent space for Buddhist teachings and practice to be established
  • A permanent space for inter-religious and inter-cultural dialogue and events
  • Space to rent for organisations who resonate with our charitable objectives
  • Rooms to rent for practitioners working in healing the body, mind and spirit
  • Residential capacity for people who resonate with our charitable objectives
  • A community space for people to feel at home and enjoy some refreshments
