The Dharma Drum Mountain Massachusetts Buddhist Association (DDMMBA) is dedicated to practicing the teachings of the Buddha through the Dharma Drum lineage of Chan Buddhism, as established by Chan Master Sheng Yen.
We welcome all who seek freedom of mind and heart to practice Chan Buddhism with us. Our experienced monastic and lay teachers offer guidance in Chan meditation practice. While the context is the Buddha’s teaching, these practices are universal in scope. They help to develop awareness and calm within ourselves, and to lead a life of cultivating compassion and wisdom.
People of like minds from all walks of life come to practice Chan, receive support from the community, deepen their understanding of themselves, and learn to live in harmony with others and nature. In light of this realization, we hope to bring peace and happiness to the world.
DDMMBA will have the following events,
On Saturday 6/24, from 10am-5pm, Venerables ChangXiu will lead the "Relaxing One Day Meditation"
And on Sunday 6/25, from 10am-12pm, Venerables ChangDi, ChangHao and ChangXiu will lead the "Ceremony in Commemoration of the Enlightenment of Bodhisattva Kuan-Yin"
Hope to see you!
