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.

Our PZI mission is to create a culture for transforming the mind through meditation, koans, conversation and the arts. We believe many impossible things, but the most impossible thing of all, that enlightenment is right here, is also the most true. And it’s not so hard to have an experience of enlightenment.  The trick is to notice it, and to embody the transformation, to live in the world that is transformed.

Our Mission
Our mission is to offer authentic teachings and practices in the Tantric Buddhist traditions of the Nyingmapa, the ancient school of Tibet; and to create a gathering place and support structure for the D.C. area community for regular practice, instruction and study; and to preserve the teachings of Lord Buddha and of our lineage masters for future generations.
By following the authentic teachings transmitted to us through our spiritual teachers, our goals are to establish the Dharma in the world and to benefit all sentient beings.  To do this, we offer a place for the community and for ourselves to practice the two accumulations — understanding through study, and realization through practice — to discover the living Dharma within ourselves, and to support each other in our practice and our lives.
Our Values
 We present these principals to guide our actions:  We strive to emulate the values personified by our teachers, including compassion for all beings, equanimity, patience, openness, ethical behavior, non-grasping, generosity, humility and simplicity.  We strive to hold respect for each member of the Sangha (community) as a practitioner on the path of enlightenment, with no bias toward anyone who comes seeking Dharma instruction and community.  We are committed to a democratic spirit among our members, with oversight and guidance from our spiritual teachers.  Decisions are made in an open, honest and cooperative manner with organizational processes as transparent as possible.  We conduct the affairs of the organization in compliance with all local, state, and national laws.
