Reading Buddhist Priory was founded in 1990 as a temple in the Serene Reflection (Soto Zen) tradition of Buddhism. It is part of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives.
It has the potential to bring beneficial change, once a true intention has been aroused.
The Priory Sangha consists of men and women in the Reading area and S.E. England who practice Soto Zen Buddhism through finding the Priory and/or Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey. There is a core of long-term practitioners. They are supported by the resident Prior Rev Gareth Milliken.
