Learn to Meditate in Vancouver

with a welcoming group of the Triratna Buddhist Community (TBC), led by members at the TBC Vancouver Buddhist Centre. Learn and practice meditation in a non-sectarian setting.

tbc vancouver is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly known as The Friends of the Western Buddhist Order whose name changed in 2010) a non-sectarian international Buddhist network of public centres, communities, ethical businesses and social projects. At the heart of the tbc is the Triratna Buddhist Order made up of both men and women of diverse backgrounds who have dedicated their lives to the practice of Buddhism.

Find out as much (or as little) about Buddhism as you like. Here's a quick summary of some of what we offer:

Practice Buddhism among Friends

guided by members of the Triratna Buddhist Community associated with TBC Vancouver at the Vancouver Buddhist Centre. The TBC welcomes all visitors, including those new to Buddhism. Come one evening as a guest and leave, we hope, as a friend.

The Buddha emphasized the importance of regular practice in the company of friends. When Ananda said that friendship was half the spiritual life, the Buddha gently corrected him, saying, "Ananda, friendship is the whole of the spiritual life."

Attend Classes on Meditation or Buddhism

at the Vancouver Buddhist Centre, given by TBC Vancouver instructors with years of teaching experience in all aspects of the subjects. Classes focus on the needs of students new to meditation or Buddhism.
