"Thus, whether one leads a spiritual life depends on whether one has been successful in bringing about that disciplined, tamed state of mind and translating that state of mind into one's daily actions."

Center's Description
The Sacramento Buddhist Meditation Group was formed in January, 1991 as a service to the Sacramento community. Our purpose is to create and sustain a spiritual community (Sangha) and to serve the Sangha by introducing and supporting meditation practice. We provide opportunities to meet and work with trained Dharma teachers who offer a range of Buddhist practices and ideas.

Our central activity is a Sunday evening gathering which consists of a 40-minute silent meditation period followed by a talk by a visiting teacher or a Sangha member. It is our intention that presentations by Sangha members be based on their experience as students of meditation. We also regularly sponsor one-day meditation retreats.

All Sangha activities are sustained through the practice of generosity (dana).

It is our ongoing intention to build a community which is safe, open, wholesome and healing in tone and which is democratic and non-hierarchical in structure. Sangha activities are organized by a "planning web" whose monthly meetings are open for participation or observation to anyone in the Sangha.
