The mission of the Columbus Open Sangha is to provide an opportunity for people to practice and study Buddhism and the teachings of the Buddha without the constrains of sectarianism or the historical lines between the many traditions of Buddhism. Rather, we will examine and reflect upon the differences in doctrine and practice between different schools of Buddhism and discuss whether they are products of culture and history or inherent to what Buddha taught. We respect that his successors continued to develop the Dharma, creating new schools of thought and practice. These are all valuable teachings, regardless of the school or tradition of the teacher.

We are dedicated to providing our members with a diverse and inclusive experience of the dharma. This means that we embrace the wide array of lineages and traditions that exist within Buddhism.

We are a completely self-sustaining and independent organization so we have complete autonomy with regard to our meeting formats and speakers. This gives us the freedom to explore and learn about different ways of meditating from different teachers. We have the unique opportunity to meet as peers and to speak freely about our individual approaches to practice.

We provide a space for reflection, discussion, mutual support, and learning. Each meeting begins with meditation instruction and a brief period of sitting. Our meetings focus on assigned readings as well as readings we will do as a group that cover a rich and diverse overview of relevant Buddhist teachings and topics.

Members are encouraged to share their personal experiences regarding their personal practice and spiritual journey.

We realize that all of us are both students and teachers at different moments of our lives--we all have something to teach and we all have something to learn.

Everyone is valuable and everyone is welcome regardless of religion, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or previous meditation experience.
