Aloha Sangha

“As a water bead on a lotus leaf, as water on a red lily, does not adhere, so the sage does not adhere to the seen, the heard, or the sensed.”

The Buddha

Our Mission Statement

The world today desperately needs a path of practical wisdom. To lead more fulfilling lives, we need to find deeper meaning and ease, what the ancient Greeks called eudaimonia. Despite having access at our fingertips to more knowledge than ever before, wisdom and well-being have gone missing in action. This website offers personal insights into the early Buddhist teachings as a source of practical wisdom and happiness anyone can follow no matter how busy and chaotic their lives seem.
