Buddhism in Leeuwarden

Meditation in Leeuwarden

The goal of Buddhism is a state of lasting, unconditional happiness known as enlightenment.

To bring us to this state, Buddhism points us to lasting values in this impermanent world, and gives us valuable information about how things really are. Through understanding the law of cause and effect, using practical tools like meditation to gain insight and develop compassion and wisdom, we — all of us — can tap into our potential to realize the ultimate goal of enlightenment.

Buddhist group Leeuwarden lies was founded in 1999. There is a relaxed atmosphere in our group. Occasionally we organize a lecture by a Buddhist teacher. This is a good time for more deepening the practice and inspiration.

Those who are interested are welcome to come by without obligation and to experience how a meditation evening is going. Foreknowledge is not necessary. We give a short introduction to Buddhism on the spot. Please contact us in advance if you would like to join.

What to bring to our meditation evening? Easy clothing is useful. You do not have to carry anything, but if you have a blanket and a meditation cushion, you can take it with you. We always have some pillows available.
