Bookstore Events

Bookshop Event - Waterstones, Bath

Tharpa Publications, in partnership with Kadampa Buddhist Centres around the UK held a successful campaign of bookshop events in 2010 to promote our bestselling Living Meditation series. The talks, given by the author’s local representatives, brought to life the practical simplicity of Buddha’s advice for a happy life.

Over the coming weeks and months we will be organising more bookshop talks to promote Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's latest title Modern Buddhism. Bookshops interested in holding one of these popular events, based on this or any of our titles, are welcome to contact us.

All upcoming events will be listed below so please stay in touch to find an event in your local area or contact us and we will let you know when one becomes available.

The meditation talk at my bookshop was a great success. the event was a sell out – we actually had to turn some people away. The talk itself was fascinating and everyone there enjoyed it immensely... I have already been asked by people who were not able to come to this event if we will hold another one and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the talk to any other bookshop.

Sara Waddington from Simply Books

All in all it was a very successful evening.  We had a lot of good feedback from people at the till along the lines of how refreshed and inspired they felt.

Clare from Waterstone's in Bath

'You know, I can't think of how you could have improved the organisation of the event.
