What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in Buddhism, meditation, mindfulness, peace, wisdom, etc. Won Buddhism of Manhattan has served, for the last twenty years, as a spiritual home for New Yorkers.

The Manhattan Won Buddhist Temple, which is also the site of the Won Buddhism UN Office, was founded in 1994. It is a place of peace and restoration, and a place to learn and practice Won Buddhism and meditation.

Won Buddhists follow Sotaesan's vision of living the teaching of Buddha with simplicity and commitment in our highly modern and materialistic society.
