All are welcome to join our Meditation classes and Lectures on Early Buddhist Teachings. To learn more about us, Read more

"Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with an impure mind a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox.."
