Clubs & Societies Directory
Cambridge University Buddhist Society, the second oldest Buddhist society in Britain and the first run by students, has provided Cambridge's diverse community with an opportunity to meet Buddhist thought and philosophy since its founding in 1955. The society has evolved according to the changing interests of its members and anyone interested in Buddhism is encouraged to join and influence the society's activities. At present, the CUBS main activities are the weekly discussion circles, and various talks by members of the Buddhist community: scholars, meditation teachers, writers, and Buddhist monks and nuns. The society also provides information on local activities such as meditation classes and groups, talks and retreats.
