Every Sunday from 10:15-12 noon the Medicine Buddha Sanga meets at Syoga. These sessions are led by our senior practitioners both lay and monastic. We receive the teachings of our Tibetan teacher Lama Gursan of the Bodhicitta Foundation and other visiting lamas when they are in town.
The goal of the Medicine Buddha Sangha is to bring the authentic teachings of the Buddha to the Baltimore community. We offer instruction to beginners who wish to learn meditation as well as regular practice and instruction for those who desire it.
Please wear comfortable, respectful, casual clothes. We sit on floor cushions or chairs provided at the center, and we open and close our meditation session by reciting short prayers and mantras from our prayer book.
Buddhism is a philosophic system taught by Sakyamuni Buddha, born Siddhartha Gautama, about 2,500 years ago in India. The teachings emphasize moral responsibility, loving kindness and compassion, and developing wisdom through the practice of meditation. The teachings of the Buddha do not interfere with other religious commitments you may have.
The Medicine Buddha Sangha is affiliated with the Bodhicitta Foundation, Cambridge, Massachusetts and the Tibetan Meditation Center, Frederick, Maryland. You can find more information about Buddhism and our group on our web site
