Meditation in Rotterdam

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.

The Buddhist center Rotterdam was founded in 1999. Twice a week we offer (freely accessible) an introduction and meditation. On Tuesday it is in Dutch and on Thursday in English. For regular visitors there are also other times that one can meditate.

Our center is occupied by 5 people and has an informal atmosphere, free of rigidity and sentimentality. All activities are done on the basis of volunteer work, friendship and idealism.

You are very welcome to come by!
