Buddhist Council of Wales welcomes us as a Member


We are delighted to announce that we now have full membership in the Buddhist Council of Wales. This means that we are thus far recognised as an established Soto Zen Buddhist group at national level and at international level by the SZBA (Soto Zen Buddhist Association.) We give thanks to our dedicated sangha for their practice. We look forward to representing Soto Zen Buddhism in Wales at Council meetings and at interfaith events and to fostering harmonious relationships with other Buddhist groups in Wales.

“The Buddhist Council of Wales was established to bring together in harmony the various Buddhist traditions practising in Wales. It endeavours to ensure that Buddhism, as one of the recognised faiths in Britain, is represented at government, civic and faith occasions in Wales. Representatives from the Council attend meetings of the Interfaith Council for Wales and the National Assembly for Wales Faith Communities Forum.”

Homage to the Buddha, Dharma & Sangha
