Stress and anxiety have always been common experiences in the human condition, however due to the recent world-wide pandemic with its projected fear of the future, lockdowns, and financial hardship we find ourselves in even more difficult circumstances.
Buddhism for over two and a half thousand years has offered us methods and techniques to help us deal with our emotional difficulties. Through the understanding of Buddhist philosophical perspectives and the application of the many meditation practices we can learn to overcome our anxiety, fear and insecurity and be of benefit not only to ourselves but also to others.

All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The dana you give helps to maintain the Library and allows it to offer more teachings on the Dhamma so that others may benefit in the future. It is up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers who spread the Dhamma.
