What we're about

Are you searching for meaning in your life?

Have you ever felt happiness in your life... ...never lasts?

This Buddhist group has a great positive, multi-cultural atmosphere that helps people search for the answer to life's biggest questions.

Through the teachings of Buddha and historical Pure Land Buddhist teachers we understand better the direction our life needs to take in order to find the purpose of life.

We offer video lectures and have meetings to discuss how to obtain an absolute form of happiness.

I hope you'll stop by and attend a meeting when you have a chance! Below, you'll find some more information about what Buddhism is all about as well as our contact info and location.

In Buddhism, we learn that there are two kinds of joy.

Relative Happiness All the happiness we know is called Relative Happiness.

Money, status, fame, wealth, family, friends, and our loved ones are all included in this category.

Politics, economics, medicine, and the arts also try to provide us with Relative happiness.

We seek for this type of happiness day in, day out hoping we can attain true satisfaction from it.

Absolute Happiness We are all seeking for a happiness which will truly last.

This kind of happiness is called Absolute Happiness.

The purpose of life is to attain it as quickly as possible while still alive.

Happiness Lab: Let's Get Together & Think Together What Happiness Is & It's Not.

Hello our friends,

The following is a synopsis of how learning Buddhism helps us access more inner joyfulness:

Rain and sunshine are equally good: the state of mind of being enlightened: equanimity. A kind of mindfulness that does not crumble or fade away. To achieve this kind of happiness, we need to overcome 2 kinds of obstacles: impermanence is one of them. Getting to see our true self is another way of going forward.

In the Buddhist scriptures, Buddha often refers to the number of the sands in the Ganges River, which happens to be a numerical unit in Japan of 10 to the power 52. As you see the world stage and the span of time is very different in Buddhism than what we're normally used to.

Let me tell you a joke:

A man asks the Buddha: How much is a million years for you?
Buddha: It’s like a second.
Man: How much is a billion dollars to you?
Buddha: It’s like a penny
Man: Can I have a penny?
Buddha: Just a second.

Buddha teaches that human life is like a lightening, like a second. Happiness is relative; without making comparison, we can’t make a judgment. Comparing human life to the history of earth (4.6 billion years). If 4.6 billion years is like a year, the dinosaurs time on earth is like December 31. Locusts live 7 days. Mayflies live for only a few hours. What’s the purpose of their life? People in their 80s feel like their 80 years have passed like the blink of an eye.

Another view in Buddhism is that when we understand impermanence, we treat things with more care. For example, when you're moving to a new home, and put your chinaware in a box, you might label it as FRAGILE. Or HANDLE WITH CARE. Why? Because we know it might break.

When you go through a tough time, you ask yourself , "Is this real?" People say it feels so surreal. Meaning they can't believe it.

If it's a good thing, we also feel, is this real? Pinch me to see I'm not dreaming.

Let's discuss more on what happiness is.
