What we're about

Kansas City Buddhist Center is a community built for Buddhists by Buddhists with the intention of gathering together to investigate the personal use of Meditation, Buddhist Philosophy and practices. We seek to experientially explore those teachings that we can as individuals, deem to be undeniably right, wise, complete and true not because we are told so but because we have each found them to be of benefit not only to ourselves but to all other beings. We seek to do no harm in our practice and we wish for the benefit to be for all beings without exception.

Under the guidance of Rev. Ronn Pawo McLane we explore "Buddhayana" or the vehicle of Buddhism by utilizing teachings and practices from multiple schools of Buddhism.

There is no experience, outfits or equipment necessary to participate or attend. Simply come with a curiosity and openness to explore yourself and your connection to all other with the intention to relieve suffering and find refuge in the state of calm abiding.

Sunday Buddhist Service - KC Buddhist Center

Pilgrim Chapel

Join Rev. Ronn Pawo McLane as he leads us through a weekly service that includes teaching, meditation as well as some lively social time with coffee, snacks and good conversation. We study and practice "Buddhayana". Buddhayana is a term for an authentic, progressive, tolerant, and inclusive Buddhism. Buddhayana calls upon the wisdom from all the traditions in a syncretic way, but without sacrificing the authenticity of the Dharma. It provides us the means by which we may adapt these ancient concepts into our modern world in the most practical sense. We seek to experientially explore those teachings that we can, as individuals, deem to be undeniably right, wise, complete, and true not because we are told so but because through our own investigation have found them to be of benefit not only to ourselves but to all other beings without exception. We seek to do no harm in our practice and we seek to benefit all beings everywhere. There is no experience, special outfits or equipment required. Simply show up with an open mind in which you may explore what makes sense to you.
