Wesak is a festival to celebrate the Buddha’s birth. Some traditions also use the occasion to recognise his enlightenment and death.
As in some previous years, Buddhist groups in Cambridge have arranged a place where people can come together to mark this.
This will be at Hartington Grove at 19:00 on Friday 20th May. There will be contributions from many groups, a chance to celebrate together and talk to others from Cambridge about their practice.
More details on the Norwich Priory website:
As in previous years, there will be a day retreat Saturday 23 April at Fairland Church Centre in Wymondham. Its only a 10 minute walk from Wymondham station.Rev Leoma will be there as will friends from Norwich and other places.

Rev Leoma from the Norwich Zen Buddhist Priory should be coming over to visit the Cambridge Group for the evening of Tuesday 23rd February.
This Tuesday is a date we are the Hartington Grove Friends' meeting House
Five of us made it to the Friends Meeting House in Jesus Lane on 5th January for our first sit together in this new venue on the additional Tuesdays ....
Good to be somewhere else and adapt!
So, having talked about this for some time!, we have managed to find a place closer to the centre of Cambridge for some extra meetings.
These will be at the Friend's Meeting House at Jesus Lane, Cambridge. Full address is 12, Jesus Lane, Cambridge, CB5 8BA.
We're going to have these new / extra meetings on the FIRST & THIRD Tuesdays of the month, starting 5th January 2016. The calendar on this website should be updated so you can see which meetings are at which place. We'll keep the existing meetings at Hartington Grove for the second & fourth Tuesdays.
At Jesus Lane we'll meet a bit earlier, with sitting starting at 19:00. The room is booked until 21:30 so we can stay in it for conversation etc. until then. We'll see how it goes. The aim of starting earlier is so that people who are in town that day, maybe at work, can come to meditation before heading home.
We have made bookings until the end of June 2016 so we can try this out for 6 months.
We have checked with the Warden at the Friends' Meeting House, Hartington Grove - where we usually meet. The Meeting House will be open on Tuesday 22nd December. Some of us have said we would like to meet then - so ... there will be people meditating then.
