We are Pure Land of Iowa, a Buddhist community located in Des Moines. We hold weekly practices every Sunday, with sessions in both English and Chinese. The practice consists of relaxing Tibetan yoga-style prostrations, group discussions, and a free delicious, vegetarian, buffet-style lunch! Yes, it's two hours of your Sunday, and yes, we are all busy people with jobs, families, and responsibilities. But just think of this: it's two hours full of meditation, understanding and improving one's self, and interacting with fellow practitioners. One of our longtime members, Patty, said: "I am so busy on Sunday, but I just tell myself to go because afterwards, I am always glad that I went. It was time well-spent."
