Several groups


The original group met weekly for many years at Market House in South Petherton and continues monthly on Sunday afternoons focused on Discovering Buddhism.  Further groups  evolved at High Ham and Bridge Road, South Petherton and Crewkerne, meeting on different days, each with their own feel, though still part of Saraswati Buddhist Group.  The High Ham group, named The Awakening the Mind Group after the text of that name by Geshe Wangchen meets most often, on a fortnightly basis.  The  other group, now meeting in Chardstock is named Buddhism in the 21st Centrury because it focuses its discussions on the contemporary application of Buddhist teachings and practices in daily life.  In 2010 a further group began to meet weekly in Taunton to practise Meditation. This is now a lunchtime group.
