Meet Ordained Member Maitreyajara Dharmachari, who gives us an introduction to the Buddhist community at the London Buddhist Centre, located in Bethnal Green.

The London Buddhist Centre serves as a vibrant hub for individuals interested in exploring and practicing Buddhism.

As Maitreyajara Dharmachari points out, the centre attracts people from various backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life. This diversity creates a rich tapestry of experiences and perspectives within the community, fostering an atmosphere of inclusivity and open-mindedness.

Situated in Bethnal Green, East London, the London Buddhist Centre benefits from a diverse and culturally vibrant area.

The centre actively engages with the local community and collaborates with schools and other organisations to promote interfaith dialogue and the application of Buddhist principles to address contemporary challenges.
