Our friendly and informal meetings take place every Tuesday at 7.30pm providing an introduction to Buddhist meditation, teachings, and practice. The 90 minute sessions begin with basic meditation (with instruction given if required), followed by a short talk on the Buddha’s teachings and in particular how to apply them to everyday life. The sessions end with time for questions and  discussion.

Meetings are open to all Buddhists and newcomers alike. (We welcome those who are not able to access locally their own Buddhist traditions or teachers but would like to meditate and discuss the teachings with us).




Facility Fee

Meditation and introduction to Buddhism classes

£4.00/£2.00 per session

It’s a good idea to attend a sequence of classes to at least begin to build an outline of what Buddhism is and how it works. Meditation days are held twice a year.

The Exeter group was established in 1983 and given the name Sakya Thinley Namgyal Ling by its founders Karma Thinley Rinpoche and Lama Jampa Thaye, who has made numerous visits over the years since it was established. Exeter has also hosted teachings by His Holiness  the Sakya Trichen, 41st head of the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and Phende Rinpoche.
