At DMC we teach both tranquility meditation (Samatha or Samadhi) and insight meditation (Vipassana), with an emphasis on compassion, noble discipline, and wisdom. Students gain insight into the cause and effect relationship between thought and action, and through the practice, purify their psyche of undesirable inefficiencies thus gradually opening a mode of living that is gentler, happier, expressive and more fulfilling than before. Students are surprised to see that they become more competent and efficient in all their undertakings as the triple skillset of clarity, equanimity, and concentration aid them in any and all tasks. Our intention is that individuals attain an art of conscious living by practicing universal noble principles such as: abstaining from harming sentient beings, abstaining from false speech, abstaining from taking what is not given, abstaining from abuse of sensual pleasures, and abstaining from intoxicants. It is through living a pure life, we can understand the wisdom and teaching of Dhamma correctly. With this correct understanding combined with the the practice of meditation, self realization occurs and our true nature becomes our companion and our joy. We offer a variety of meditation programs, learning seminars, children learning pro-grams, and social events for our members and the public at large. Our aim is to assist people from diverse backgrounds develop harmony, happiness, and peace for themselves and their communities. Please join us for this wonderful opportunity to meditate together, and invite your friends and family members also, so that all may be happy and peaceful and free.

Greetings Beloved Dhammanjali Community, Beginning November 7th in our ongoing efforts to share the meditation classes for the benefit of all sentient beings, DMC will be bringing its meditation classes online via Zoom rather than its present location on Rae Street. The NEW Online Meditation classes occur on Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 6:30p.m. to 7:30p.m. (Saskatchewan time). You can join online via Zoom, or you can call-in via telephone (the URL and phone numbers are below). Please note that if it is your first time using Zoom, you may need a couple of extra minutes to download the software before you will be able to get into the room. Please arrive into the room with your microphone on mute, or place it on mute immediately upon entry. Background noise makes it much more difficult to hear the speaker and occupies considerable bandwidth, significantly diminishing the audio/video quality for everyone in the room, so please remember to mute yourself (the button is usually in the lower left, labelled "Mute" or "Audio"). Zoom participants will have the opportunity to speak with Bhante and ask questions at the end of the meditation time. You can do this by un-muting your microphone when invited to do so. Here is the information for the online Zoom Meeting Room: *** Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: https://zoom.us/j/6475807159
