Place of Buddha’s Teachings…

Buddha Meditation Centre of Halton is a place for you to learn and practice the authentic teachings of the Buddha. We are a part of the ancient Theravada Buddhist Tradition which began 2600 years ago. We provide a variety of activities and meditation classes for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists who are interested in Buddhism and Theravada Buddhist Meditation. All the activities here are led by Buddhist Monks trained in the ancient Pali scriptures. We offer our all activities for free of charge to the public. You will find a friendly welcoming atmosphere when you visit the monastery. We hope by experiencing the teachings of the Buddha, you will find a path towards building a more joyful and compassionate life, for yourself and those you hold dear. Never been here before?

Compassion / Loving-Kindness / Generous 

Always looking forward to help others

At the Buddha Meditation Center of Halton, we organize and help with multiple projects to those in need, including running blood drives, soup kitchens, food drives and more. As disciples of the Supreme Buddha, who spread loving kindness to all beings, our goal is to give and help with a heart filled with boundless compassion to those individuals facing difficult times.

Annual Educational Supplies Donation

(Held in December)

Educational supplies play an integral role in shaping the academic journey of students across all levels of learning. These resources, encompassing a vast array of tools such as notebooks, pencils, rulers, calculators, and more, serve as the bedrock of a student’s educational experience.  Your kind contribution will make a big difference in the lives of children in rural areas in Sri Lanka who have difficulties to purchase these items . That’s why we thought make them happy by donating their essential needs for them. Join with us to make their lives better.  Thank you for your support! Contact us for more information.

Annual Blood Donation

(Held in June)

Blood donation is an act of selflessness that saves lives. Each donation has the potential to impact multiple individuals in need. By giving a portion of one’s blood, donors offer hope and support to those battling illnesses, undergoing surgeries, or facing emergencies. Beyond its immediate impact, blood donation fosters a sense of community, encouraging individuals to come together for a noble cause. The process is simple, yet its impact is profound, making a difference that extends far beyond the confines of a single donation. Thank you for your support! Contact us for more information.

Keep Anger at Bay – Buddha’s Way

Anger is part of day-to-day life. Do you not get angry if someone cuts you off while you are standing in line at the store? You do. We all become angry over things that happen against our wishes or words spoken by someone that we don’t like to hear. This is a common occurrence in our daily lives.
