-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: http://www.kagyu-richmond.org   Upcoming Event: Nyunye Retreat at The Clearing in Amelia County May 31 to June 3, 2013  


Ekoji Vipassana Group

  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

Ekoji Buddhist Sangha in Richmond, Virginia houses a multi-denominational community of Buddhist and Buddhist-inspired groups, including Jodo-Shin Pure Land, Vipassana, Kagyu Tibetan, Zen, Meditative Inquiry, and Bon Tibetan. All are open to the public. Meditation instruction is also offered.
