    Through Leeds Buddhist Centre we have taught the practice of meditation and Buddhism since our foundation in 1983. The Centre is affiliated to the Triratna Buddhist Community, an international Buddhist movement with many Centres throughout the UK and the world.

    The Triratna Buddhist Community draws from different Buddhist traditions and aims to apply the principles of Buddhism to modern life.
