Welcome to the webpage for the King’s Lynn Triratna Buddhist Community – our digital home for Buddhism in King’s Lynn. We are a small and friendly group of practicing Buddhists and meditators.

Classes are led most Monday and Tuesday evenings at the Friends Meeting House, Bridge Street, King’s Lynn.  Monday evenings run from 7pm to 9pm and are led by Viryashalin whose focus is in depth study on Buddhist practice.

Tuesday evening classes are generally led by Viprasana and/or Sanghaketu, both of whom have been ordained with the Triratna Buddhist Order for over twenty years. Both have a wealth of meditation and Buddhist experience and a relaxed teaching style. Viprasanna was ordained in 1993. He is a yoga teacher and endeavours to maintain and advance his practice through yoga, meditation and music.  Tuesday evenings run for slightly longer from 7pm to 9.30hrs.  If you have had no previous contact with Buddhism and are interested in learning more this is probably a good starting point.

Evenings are usually either on a drop in basis or there will be a themed course being run over consecutive evenings – usually based on meditation or the Buddhist faith. If you are interested in coming along you are very welcome – there is an email address on the ‘Contact’ page if you’d like to contact us beforehand but its not essential. We are open to all whether Buddhist or complete newcomer.

Thank you

    1. Hello Sharon, there is a meeting tonight. We meditate and then study one of the principal tenets of buddhism – conditionality through the imagery of the Tibetan Wheel of life. Might I suggest if this is your first contact with Buddhism tomorrow night might be better for you. It would be good to see you. Mary


      1. I was attending another group in Epping I think I will come along tonight. And maybe tomorrow as well.
        I look forward to meeting you.
        Thank you. X


  1. Hi Mary
    I attended your Meditation last Monday and Tuesday. I just wanted to say a big thank you to the group. I found the people so warm supportive and exceptional. The meditation immediately calmed me and gave me clarity to make difficult decisions.
    I went away this weekend on a Tri Ratana Meditation and Yoga retreat in Walsham le Willows It was brilliant. I would never have gone if it wasn’t for the warmth from you at the King Lynn group. I’ve moved on now but if I ever find myself up your way on a Monday or Tuesday I will be back for more.
    I wish you all well.


    1. Hello Sharon,
      It was a real pleasure to have you join us, however briefly. You are so open and friendly. I will pass on your kind words to everyone and I know they would want me to wish you all the very best on your retreat and with everything else that is going on for you at this time. If you are passing, don’t be a stranger.

      Wishing you well
      Mary (on behalf of KL Triratna Group)


    1. Hello. Yes you are welcome to join us. I will email you privately so we can chat and find the best evening for you. Kind regards Mary


  2. I would love to come along but I’m disabled with COPD and can’t walk far is there parking nearby please?

    Mary replied privately, to give practical advice about parking and enquiring about any particular needs.


    1. Hello Bel,
      Yes of course, that is fine to do that. Probably, come along on a Tuesday as you will get a taste of meditation, tea and general discussion. You would be very welcome and would not be required to do anything.
      Kind regards


  3. Hi there
    My name is Gil, me and my partner are looking to practice Buddhism and we found your page online and we are very kean to attend your meetings. Just want to know what we have to do to make that possible. Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Gil and Vanessa


    1. Hello Gil and Vanessa, You are very welcome to join us. Might I suggest Tuesday evenings are a better starting point if you have had no previous experience of Buddhism and meditation. We start at 7.00pm at the Friends meeting House, King’s Lynn. I have emailed you privately as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information. Kindest regards Mary


    1. Hello Sarah,
      The group operates in a spirit of dana – A buddhist term roughly translated as generosity. In this way Buddhism and meditation can be made available to the wider community excluding no-one. When people ask for guidance about how much to give, the guidance is what you can afford – suggestion is £7 for waged £5 for unwaged. Some people give more, some people give less. The money goes to the cost of hiring a venue and other expenses.
      Kind regards
