Chanted meditation sessions, or Pujas, are held at our Center in Austin throughout the week. These sessions are a great way to receive blessings, use our speech in a beneficial way, and gain practice with self-guided meditation.
All of the chanted meditation sessions below are FREE and open to the public.
You do not need any previous experience and do need to be a Buddhist to attend. Everyone is welcome !
Note: Occasionally we have events or alternate meditation pratices that might change the time and day of a regularly scheduled chanted meditation. Please consult our LIVE CALENDAR for most up to date information.
