Our Mission

Our primary goal is to be a center for inner peace for all Buddhists and non-Buddhists in the Great Lakes area to practice the teachings of the Buddha. The activities we perform through mindfulness and loving-kindness way of life promote individual inner peace and social solidarity. These activities include offering Buddhist teachings for children and adults, meditation guidance, organizing volunteer projects for youth, and conducting religious ceremonies.
We find that more people are becoming interested in joining the monastic order in the Theravada tradition in the United States. Our mission for the future is to open a monastery that will be able to facilitate devotees to be ordained by our center. This will create tremendous opportunities for those who want to enter the order and commit themselves into a monastic way of life.
