Our Mission

“The Buddha gave his teaching for the good of many, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world.”

We see ourselves as a Buddhist outreach organization whose aim is to expand the boundaries of dharma; and as 21st century spiritual pioneers, we seek to create an innovative, practical, and thriving American Buddhism that meets the religious, ethical, and psychological needs of our generation and culture through the liberating teachings of Shin Buddhism, while also being tethered to classic Buddhist teachings, the discoveries of modern science, and the biophysical reality of being human.
