About Us

Byoma Kusuma Buddhadharma Sangha, United Kingdom (BKBDS-UK)

The Sangha in the UK has been active since September, 2002 with a centre based in South Ruislip, London. The centre is registered with the HMRC and is home to our Sahayak Dharmacharyas (Assistant Dharma Masters), Pratistha Karki and Rajesh Khadka. It is also a place for the sangha to meet, and also plays host to regular discourses on Buddhist philosophy, pujas, and other activities.
