What we're about

The Philadelphia Buddhist Association (PBA) was founded in 1986 as a place where the teachings of Buddhism can be offered by teachers from the major traditions and where students of Buddhism at all levels of experience can meet in an atmosphere of openness and commitment to practice. We offer a variety of activities at PBA: weekly meditation practice in Plymouth Meeting and Radnor, a monthly lecture & discussion series on various Buddhist topics, a monthly Sutra Study group where we read the teachings of the Buddha, day long retreats and workshops from all traditions throughout the year, and a monthly group where we meet to talk about our meditation practice. We are always available to offer advice and information to assist people in finding a path, to enrich their current practice or to simply discover the basics of Buddhism and meditation.

PBA embraces all participants without regard to race, ethnic background, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. We welcome all and never charge a fee.

Buddhist Meditation Meetup at Plymouth Meeting

Online event

Our currently virtual meditation meetup happens weekly except for the second Sunday of the month--when we have our lecture series meetup. Come sit with a small, supportive group. Join on Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89485971086?pwd=dG9kK2wwWmZIL2ZKUytiVGZ0UmE5QT09 Meeting ID:[masked] Password:[masked] If you usually meditate alone, you'll be surprised by the different energy that comes with group sitting. If you're new to meditation or haven't sat for a while, just ask for a PRIVATE LESSON or a refresher when you walk in. Conversation and questions happen at the beginning and end of the evening. We'll meditate in 15-20 min. sitting periods with 5-10 min. walking periods in between. You can bring a friend with your one RSVP. Or even come without any RSVP. We supply cushions, meditation benches, and chairs. All good. There is no charge. Sponsored by the Philadelphia Buddhist Association www.philabuddhist.org
