Every city or town needs spiritual places where men and women can find a space that reminds them of the profound realities of life that are more important than consuming and competing. In our modern world it’s difficult to find these places so, that’s what we, as Buddhists are offering, alongside the Churches and other spiritual places. We want to offer this space for people to study, reflect and meditate and, above all, rediscover their heart.
