In Buddhism, cleaning is a good deed. Bet you didn't know that! It improves our mindset and creates a positive environment for us to seek true happiness. So it's all the more important to keep our Buddhist temple clean. Hang out with us as we polish brass, clean up the yard, vacuum, etc. You can choose whatever job you feel comfortable with doing. Bring music and let's get cleaning!
This Buddhist group has a great positive, multi-cultural atmosphere that helps people search for the answer to life's biggest questions. Through the teachings of Buddha and historical Pure Land Buddhist teachers we understand better the direction our life needs to take in order to find the purpose of life.
Every week, we offer local lectures and have group discussions to discuss how to obtain an absolute form of happiness. Often we have potluck dinners together to talk about current events and how they relate to Buddhism.
This Pure Land Group also goes out to karaoke, visits museums, and attends a lot of great events to support the community. I found my deepest level of spirituality in this group, and it's become like my second home. I hope you'll stop by and attend a meeting when you have a chance!
Below, you'll find some more information about what Buddhism is all about as well as our contact info and location.
In Buddhism, we learn that there are two kinds of joy.
All the happiness we know is called Relative Happiness. Money, status, fame, wealth, family, friends, and our loved ones are all included in this category. Politics, economics, medicine, and the arts also try to provide us with Relative happiness.
We seek for this type of happiness day in, day out hoping we can attain true satisfaction from it.
We are all seeking for a happiness which will truly last. This kind of happiness is called Absolute Happiness. The purpose of life is to attain it as quickly as possible while still alive.
