KING’S LYNN TRIRATNA (KLT) is a small network of practicing Buddhists whose organized events take place in King’s Lynn and who additionally come together as part of a broader network around West Norfolk, meeting and practicing together in person and via Zoom.

KLT is part of ‘TRIRATNA’ a worldwide Buddhist community founded in 1968 to create a model for living Buddhism in modern Western life.

Who we are


King’s Lynn Triratna was first set in motion by Dharmachari Udara, an ordained member of Triratna, in 2014. In time, other Triratna Order members came to teach in his place, notably Sanghaketu, Viprasanna and a little later Viryashalin. Together with the faithful group of practitioners in and around Kings Lynn, they continued to offer classes, courses and occasional weekend retreats in Buddhism and meditation.

Passing through many changes, not least the recent pandemic and including the Ordination of Sammudita and arrival of Sinhadevi, it currently comprises a core team of ordained members of Triratna together with a growing but dedicated group of practitioners, running a programme of classes, courses and occasional weekend retreats.

On the full moon of July, Buddhists worldwide and throughout time have gathered on this occasion to celebrate the first ‘Turning of the Wheel’ when the newly-Enlightened Buddha gave his first teaching of the Dharma. Our festival in King’s Lynn will take place on Sunday 21st July at Viryashalin’s home at Townshend’s Pightle, Holt Road, Thornage NR25 7QB. It provides an opportunity for everyone connected to King’s Lynn Triratna to come together to enjoy friendship, meditation, puja and celebration.



A course starting on Tuesday 18th June 7-9pm at The Friends Meeting House in King’s Lynn.
Suitable for beginners and as a follow-up to previous courses.
Buddhism for head and heart.

Buddhism offers us an inspiring vision of what it means to be a human being and it does not stop there. It also gives us ways to transform our emotions – and our life in the light of this vision.

Using a combination of teaching, discussion, meditation and practical exercise, this 6-week course will help you develop more emotional warmth and positivity and apply the wisdom of Buddhism to all areas of your life.
