Ekoji Pure Land Group

Speak one sentence less of chatter; Recite once more the Buddha’s name. Recite until your false thoughts die; Your Dharma Body will come to life. -Seeker's Glossary of Buddhism  


Richmond Zen Group

Richmond Zen has a new site! Please go to: www.richmondzen.org          Zen practice is to get to our True Mind, the mind not accessible to thinking. This mind cannot be consciously known by ordinary efforts. An unusual effort is necessary. This effort is zazen. - Shunryu Suzuki


Tibetan Buddhist Group

Kagyu Shenpen Tharchin has its own website: www.kagyu-richmond.org    


Insight Meditation Community

  Mind is the forerunner of all actions. All deeds are led by mind, created by mind. If one speaks or acts with a serene mind, happiness follows, As surely as one’s shadow. -Dhammapada 1:2      


Meditative Inquiry Group

Awareness cannot be taught, and when it is present it has no context. All contexts are created by thought and are therefore corruptible by thought. Awareness simply throws light on what is, without any separation whatsoever. -Toni Packer              


Ligmincha Richmond

As students of this particular strain of Tibetan Buddhism, we are here to share meditation as learned from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, founder of Ligmincha Institute, the Bon center of the west, and our beloved teacher of the ancient Bon lineage of indigenous Tibetan teachings. “Dzogchenpas” — as Tenzin Rinpoche’s teacher His Holiness Lungtok Nyima Tenpa’i fondly calls us — we are students of Dzogchen.  >>> Upcoming Event - Medicine Buddha Teaching
