Meditation Classes at Our Dallas Temple

 

Come and enjoy drop-in meditation classes at our newly renovated 8500 square foot downtown Dallas Temple! The Temple offers an ideal setting to learn about and improve your meditation practice in an inspiring and peaceful environment.

Drop-in classes are offered several times per week and oriented towards those that are new to meditation and Buddhism. Some classes have fees and some are by donation, however no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. 

We also offer enrollment-based study programs for those wishing to go deeper into understanding and practicing Buddha's teachings.

Everyone is welcome!

 Meditation is an action of our mind and is the main cause of inner peace. When we meditate we are creating the cause of happiness and so happiness will definitely arise, because without a cause there can be no result. Through deepening our knowledge and experience of the stages of the path to enlightenment we can not only calm our busy mind, but effect positive inner change and create a deep transformation of our mind and heart.

Topic
How to Transform Your Life

Learn practical methods for reducing problems and increasing happiness by changing our mental attitudes from negative to positive.
