The Theravada Buddhist Sangha in the United Kingdom (TBSUK) is organising a conference to brainstorm and exchange ideas and experience on Buddhist leadership. The issue of Buddhist leadership, especially among the Sangha in the UK, is a most relevant one as effective and appropriate leadership is often called for in many ways not experienced or thought of before.

The Sangha has come a long way since its conception some 2600 years ago; as has been the case all along, it is only through discussion and consultation that the Sangha can effectively deal with issues such as authority and adaptation, opportunities and challenges, individual responsibility and community participation.

The conference will take place at Wat Santiwongsaram, 107 Handsworth Wood Road, Birmingham. B20 2PH, on 22nd June 2019 and all Theravada Sangha members in the UK are invited. The pre-eminent translator of the Pali Tipitaka into English of our time, the Most Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, will be the keynote speaker. There will be also workshops open only to members of the Sangha.

If you wish to attend the TBSUK Conference, or just wish to find out more information, please write to tbsuk@foresthermitage.org.uk or telephone 01926 624385.
