"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do 
not believe in traditions because they have been handed down 
for many generations. 

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it 
and live up to it.”
- the Buddha

OUR SANGHA is open to everyone from those new to meditation to those who are experienced practitioners.  People of all faiths join us in meditation and contemplation.
