Hi folks!! After a good long summer hiatus, we're back at it with online meditation sessions! Please join us today, if you can, for a Mindfulness of Breathing practice at 2:30pm ET / 7:30pm UK.

Please try to arrive a few minutes before the meditation begins. If you join the meditation late, please mute your microphone to avoid disturbing others. Thank you!

This class - like all our classes - is offered by donation. Give now if you can and support our work: thebuddhistcentre.com/giving

Young Indian Futures is a small Triratna project, funded entirely by voluntary efforts, based at Aryaloka Computer Institute, Nagpur, India. The Young Indian Futures Project gives training in computing, and other desirable employment skills, to young people from deprived communities in India. Over the next period sixteen young men and women will be fully supported for six months. At the end of the course they can get decent jobs, and lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

This short video gives a flavour of the project. Find out more and how to donate: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/youngindianfutures
