Tradition: Non-Sectarian

Find on:
Main Contact: Maxim Pozharitsky  Email  (Phone: +375292356289)
Notes and Events:

This resource brings together a group of people interested in Buddhist teachings. Formation of the Alliance of the Buddhists began in 2002. By this time in our city Rechica, Belarus, has resided several people from the regions of Russia traditionally practicing Buddhism (Buryats, Kalmyks). Another part of the group formed Belarusians practicing Buddhism individually.

Our position - practicing Buddhism and send in a form that corresponds to modern thinking. Some forms that reflect the core experience of Buddhism, need to adapt to our new environment. Essence of Buddhism, however, is universal and unchanging. We, as the Buddhists living in a European country, draw inspiration from all Buddhist traditions. Therefore, we are not only followers of Theravada (southern tradition) and Mahayana (the northern tradition), we study and practice everything that we consider useful in any of the Buddhist tradition. Buddhists respect the citizens who do not believe in religion, and to the believers of other faiths.

Alokabodhi Buddhist Group

Address:   Maidstone Kent
Tradition: Theravada
Affiliation: Thai Forest Tradition
Find on:
Notes and Events:

Alokabodhi Buddhist Group is the new name of the Maidstone Buddhist Group that has been meeting regularly for about 30 years.

The Alokabodhi Buddhist Group, (previously known as the Mid-Kent and Medway Buddhist Group), has been meeting regularly for nearly 40 years. It has evolved into a gathering of spiritual practitioners, committed not only to the study and practice of the Buddha-Dhamma, but also to developing spiritual friendship, something the Buddha said was of crucial importance on the spiritual Path.  We believe that spiritual friendship is a very important quality to cultivate, because it inspires, guides and supports us in our practice.

We meet every Tuesday evening from 7.30pm 10.00pm, in the quiet space of the  Garden room, The Blackthorn Medical Centre, St Andrew’s Road, Barming, Maidstone.  Meetings usually include group meditation with readings or a talk followed by discussion.  We provide a forum for learning and sharing our experiences of integrating the Buddha’s teachings into our everyday life.  If you are interested in joining us or would like to know more please use the Contact Form on our website:

The Alokabodhi sangha also meets in Ashford on the first Tuesday of each month.  Please contact Bernie Oxland for details.
We also support each other’s practice by organising events outside our weekly meetings.  These include our regular Sangha Sundays when our activities include gathering together for a mindful walk in the country (yatra), days of practice which include periods of noble silence, Days of Practice which include periods of Noble Silence, meditation, Dhamma teachings and discussions; family Sangha days, and the opportunity to visit monasteries or other Buddhist centres.

Apart from our residential retreats all our activities are on a dana basis  i.e. they are offered free of charge out of a spirit of generosity, another key aspect of the Buddhas teaching.
