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 plays host to regular discourses on Buddhist philosophy, pujas, and other activities.

Other Groups

We have informal groups in South East London and Sheffield that practice under the guidance of our Sahayak Dharmacharyas.

Please contact us for further details.

Weekly Dharma Discussion Group

These are informal Dharma discussion sessions that generally run for six weeks.

Children Session     

The sessions, for children aged eight and over, are full of fun and insight. They are run over a series of six weeks and combine meditation with therapeutic play using Buddhist and psychological approaches.

Ganachakra Puja (Feast Offering)

Generally, sangha members who have taken refuge in the three jewels are allowed to attend the Guru Rinpoche Ganachakra Puja. Attendance at other Ganachakra Pujas are strictly restricted to those that have received the empowerment of the concerned Yidam (Deity).
