BLS pic 3Buddhist Sangha

Our Sangha name is Bodhi-Ling: Place of Awakening.  Our purpose is to bring together spiritual people who have a shared interest in learning and practicing the wisdom the Buddha.  Although we study in the traditions of the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Pema Chodron, and other Zen and Insight teachers. We welcome students from all forms of Buddhism.  Non-Buddhist persons, as well, are invited to share in our meditation, study and teachings.  Our Mission is to alleviate the suffering of all sentient beings and to cultivate loving-kindness, peace, compassion and a higher spiritual way of living.
