Our philosophy is rooted in the concept of “human revolution,” a process of inner transformation through Buddhist practice. It is a process that leads us to develop our character and to act not only for our personal fulfilment but also for the betterment of society.

By chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with confidence in our innate Buddhahood—or highest human potential—we can dispel self-doubt, challenge our problems courageously and reveal our innate wisdom and compassion. Through chanting, studying Buddhist philosophy and taking action daily for the well-being of others, we can establish a state of profound happiness and make each moment of our lives joyful and meaningful while contributing to peace in our families and community.

The core of Buddhist meditation training is based on yoga techniques taught by Shakyamuni Buddha and successive teachers. These techniques include sitting meditation, used to develop calm, awareness, and finally insight, as well as walking meditation. Imaginal practice is also used to creatively work with aspects of our own self nature through imagining Buddhas such as Tara, Chenresig or Vajrasattva. Discussions and Dharma talks help integrate these techniques into our daily life.  Please visit our website for meeting times.
