Q + A

Q: I’ve never been to a Buddhist center before. What should I expect?

Teachings are conducted in English; however, most of our prayers are in Tibetan which has transcribed for English speakers and many of these are translated into English. You do not need to bring any mats or wear any special clothing. Please see the information given under “Visit Us” and “What to Expect.”

Q: Do I need to have experience in meditation or Buddhism to attend the classes?

No. All you need is the wish to improve yourself and the quality of your life.

Q: What is the cost of the classes?

Many Centers charge a fee to attend classes or require a monthly membership fee. However, our guiding teacher insisted that teachings be offered free of charge.

Q: Do I need to sit on the floor?

No. While we sit on meditation cushions, you can sit on a chair if your prefer.

Q: Is there any physical exercise involved?

No. There is no physical activity or movement involved in any of our classes.
