A sangha in the Theravada Buddhist tradition




Albuquerque Vipassana Sangha is a community that aspires to realize the liberating potential of the dharma—the teachings of the Buddha
Our meditation gatherings, dharma talks and other activities are open to all. We always like to see new faces and old friends. Please join us.
