What we're about

Public Group


Welcome to the Connecticut Meetup Group “Buddhist Study & Meditation for Cultivating Compassion”. We are a group of warm-hearted, sincere Buddhist practitioners and spiritual seekers in search of creating more stability, peace of mind, happiness and compassion within our daily lives. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow spiritually, whether you are just beginning or have been studying for many years.

In today's day and age, compassion and loving-kindness are like rare jewels that are hard to come by, yet these rare jewels aren't just luxuries but are necessities to living a full, happy, and complete life. We need more love in order to create more inner and outer happiness in our lives. Our happiness is dependent on others happiness. Buddhism gives us the wisdom to see how to cultivate compassion.

We have the great good fortune to be guided on our journey by Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, a very humble yet immensely accomplished yogi, whose sincerity, dedication & guidance is very inspiring & brings the Buddhist teachings alive in our daily lives.

We will be offering members opportunities to attend teachings, meditation groups, and other fun spiritually nourishing activities. As well as posting insightful quotes from our Lama Mingjo Rinpoche and other great Buddhist teachers on the message board from time to time, to keep us all inspired and informed. Please feel free to post any questions or comments on our page whenever you wish.
