Do good. Don’t do evil. Purify the mind.


The Buddhist Network of Central Ohio Meetup is here for Buddhists and Friends in Columbus and Central Ohio to connect and meet. This is the meetup group for intentionally positive people who are interested in meeting others interested in Buddhism and the practice of Buddhism in Central Ohio. This meetup group support positive local Buddhists events of all branches of Buddhism in Central Ohio. Buddhism Central Ohio (the prior name of Buddhist Network of Central Ohio),, initiated this meetup group for the above purposes. For some, this group provide a medium to observe and analyze the teachings and its practices by actively participating in local Buddhist related events to have better understanding about Buddhism.

Believed to be Buddha's Quote: 

"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."
