Buddhist society banner 2013

The Warwick Buddhist Society provides guided meditation sessions for all students and staff interested to learn meditation. No prior knowledge or meditation background is required. The sessions are guided by Luangpor Khemadhammo and Ajahn Manapo. Luangpor Khemadhammo is the Chief Abbott of The Forest Hermitage, a Buddhist temple based in Warwickshire, and he has been teaching meditation in this Society for the past 20+ years.

The sessions are free to all and held twice a week:

Monday: 6.30pm-8pm @R1.13 (Ramphal Building)

Thursday: 6pm-7.30pm @Chaplaincy

Additionally, Warwick Buddhist Society liaises with Warwick Thailand Society to run trips to The Forest Hermitage for Buddhist festivals. More information can be found on the fb group: Warwick Buddhist Society (

To promote greater understanding in Buddhism, the society offers books on Buddha's teachings on loan. Feel free to contact any Exec to get hold of a book for your reading purposes.
