Within our service, we value knowledge and empowerment in life-transformation, compassion in service to others, integrity and respect in our conduct, and our greatest strength is our community.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Meditation is a systematic training of the
mind and body which persistently develops
awareness on the reality of both inner and
outer world. Through this practice, stu
dents purify their minds, gradually opening
a mode of living that is gentler, happier,
more expressive and more fulfilling than
before. Students regularly report that they
become more competent and efficient in
all of their daily undertakings, as the triple
skillset of clarity, equanimity, and concentration
aid them in any and all tasks.
