Padmaloka is the main retreat centre in the UK & Europe for men who have requested Ordination into the Triratna Buddhist Order. Men can attend retreats throughout the year ranging from weekend study retreats to two-week study and or meditation retreats.
For 40 years Padmaloka has stood at the heart of the men’s wing of the Triratna Order. All who come here join the Padmaloka community in an ongoing exploration of the great treasury of Buddhist tradition, working out its relevance to our lives today.
Entering into the magic of Padmaloka ‘The Lotus Realm’ whether on a two-week retreat or just for a weekend, we glimpse the Buddhist vision of what we can become as human beings and the sense of the boundless potential for compassion and understanding that resides in every heart.
