Notes and Events:

The LAUGHING BUDDHA SANGHA offers a very eclectic - Inquiry into Self practice - combining the calm observation approach of traditional Vipassana Mindfulness with the crazy wisdom irrationality of Zen Non-Duality which short-circuits the obsessive self-absorbed, self-identified mind.

Newcomers: Beginners very welcome! You will be very patiently guided. Newcomers are asked to please inquire first by phone to see if this group is possibly even for you. This sitting group encourages highly inquisitive, unflappable people with a natural, deep love of learning – who relish the abstract, and even the absurd - with a genuine taste for the indefinable existential stuff.

Experienced Meditators who are seeking a much deeper questioning into Self - and a de-mystifying, open-minded, caring conversation into Wisdom, Empathy and Spiritual Reality in our Western life-style + some poetry and laughing! Our practice is informed by traditional Theravada Buddha Dharma for clarity of view.

"BUDDHA: The JOYOUS ICONOCLAST" Study Series – offers a much more outside-the-box-Buddhism! Heart-filled heresy for a more maverick spirited inner-quest – for nourishing an iconoclast intelligence and compassionate critical thinking with a caring heart – thru some refreshing, risky, even radical spiritual considerations of Reality by developing a Dharma informed mind.

The Open Meditation Class is 7:30 - 9:30 PM, Monday Evenings and Includes: Guided Instruction - a 35 minute Silent Meditation - Dharma text study with Q&A dialogue - Metta-style Loving-Kindness Meditation with sacred poetry to conclude. The Core Study Group meets with Akasa on Tuesday evening, The Zen-Men Group on Thursdays. Sangha Shabat one Friday evening a month. Please Phone for Details. 

Akasa Levi was one of the few Americans of the counter-culture generation that lived a decade in Asia during the 70s, to be directly with the last living spiritual teachers of the pre-global era. He was a Buddhist forest monk for six years - trained and ordained into the Theravada monastic lineage by the revered Maha Nayake Ananda Maitreya of Sri Lanka. Originally a Vajrayana initiate of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Zopa Rinpoche at Kopan, Nepal - and later, a Vipassana student of S.N. Goenka and Anagarika Munindra in Bodhgaya, India - and practicing Non-Duality Advaita in satsang with Nisargadatta Maharaj in Bombay. Akasa is a Bodhi-Acharya lineage-holder of the Theravada teaching-transmission. He is known for his spontaneity and wry unpredictable humor.

Notes and Events:

THE ULTIMATE TRUTH PREACHING MISSION, (a socio-religious organization ) have the honour to state that the SHANTI NIKETAN BOUDDHA VIHARA was established in the year 1968 by a local Managing Committee with a very temporary structure. The village Tuichawng is located in south west corner of Mizoram India near Indo-Bangladesh Border.

Most of the villagers are CHAKMA in tribe and BUDDHIST by religion. About 400 families live at Tuichawng and surrounding villages. The total population is around 2800 who live on shifting cultivation. Due to inavailability of fertile land in the locality, they can not produce enough crops for their livelihood. So, they live a miserable life just hand to mouth. Being poor, our people can not contribute fund to develop the Buddhist monastery. During last twenty five years, it was anyhow constructed with sown timber structure with GCI sheet roofing in 1996. Now it has become very old. The villagers are trying to re-build it with concrete structure. An small amount has already been gathered which is not enough. It has become very difficult to gather more fund.

Beside this, Our organization has started a mission school names as AHIMSA SCHOOL for the needy and privileged children. We also appeal all to extend your helping hands by giving us support to provide education to our unfortunate children. We primarily needs teacher’s salary and building grants.

Therefore on behalf of the Buddhist people of this locality, do appeal your organization to look into the matter sympathetically and come forward to provide us financial assistance for the further development and construction of the Buddhist Monastery mentioned above. For the act of which your kindness, we shall remain ever grateful.
