Free daily meditation sessions at the Washington Buddhist Vihara, the first Buddhist temple that was established in the United States. We practice calm and insight meditation from the Theravadan tradition, recognized by scholars as the most ancient Buddhist tradition to transcribe the words of the Buddha. Whether you are Buddhist or not, meditation is a universal practice to find peace and happiness within ourselves. We are a dynamic and diverse community of meditators with backgrounds in various traditions and styles. Monks and lay teachers are available for questions, and provide guided meditation sessions on Sundays at 3 pm, followed by a question and answer period.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
