Welcome to the Malta Buddhist Centre. Our Centre provides a peaceful oasis in the middle of a busy and stressful world. We are part of the Triratna Buddhist Community, a worldwide movement that seeks to make the traditional teachings and practices of the Buddha available to the modern world.
Our classes are open to all. Although we are dedicated to bringing the benefits of Buddhism to all who seek them, you don’t have to be a Buddhist to participate. Buddhism as we practice it is unique in that you can engage with many of its core practices and gain benefit from doing so without having to be a Buddhist or ‘believe’ in the Buddha in a religious sense.
Whether you come for a meditation class or want to find out how the Buddhist approach to life can change yours for the better, we’ll be pleased to see you.
