Bright Earth is a Pure Land Buddhist Temple in the heart of Malvern, Worcestershire in the UK.

    Amida Trust bought the property which houses our temple in December 2014. It has four floors – the top for residents, the ground floor with a dining room and our shrine room (and the most amazing views over the Severn valley), a lower ground floor with a library and living room, and the basement where resident temple managers Kaspa & Satya live. It was built in the 1820s as a guest house. The temple also has a nice big garden which we use for Buddhist practice every Saturday.

    The great advantage of living in a Buddhist temple is that the qualities of the people who share the space will inevitably rub off on you in some way.
