Dhamma School

We have a Sunday gathering for children. Sri Lankan American children have sought the help of monastic teachers in navigating between their cultures, and learning about Buddhism.

Rather than preparing kids for exams or competitions in normal school settings, the Dhamma School provides children with a joyful spiritual environment to learn and practice the Buddha’s teachings. When children learn the spiritual values on how they should guide themselves in the right directions, they will grow up as good citizens in the society.

The Dhamma School focuses on teaching the children the techniques to control their negative emotions through mindfulness techniques, encouraging them to take responsibility for their actions and to practice five precepts in daily basis.
