Welcome to the New England Buddhist Vihara and Meditation Center!

The main purpose of this center is to provide a place of learning, exploration and quiet contemplation for all those who seek a retreat from the stress and the hustle-and-bustle of modern society. In this center, we conduct different types of meditation classes, discussion sessions of Buddhist philosophy and thought, sessions of counseling and guidance based on Dhamma teachings, and special instructional classes geared towards young children and teenagers. All these classes and sessions will be held in an environment of deep caring and understanding.

These services will be provided by a group of Theravada Buddhist monks, led by Venerable Debokkawe Pannasiri, at no charge to anyone who seeks it regardless of their background, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, profession or political affiliation.
