Young Sangha

As Buddhists, our community connects us to one another as well as to the place called Aryaloka. Young Sangha is an opportunity for our children, beginning at the age of 5, to gather at Aryaloka on a regular basis in order to create a sense of connectedness with the Buddhist community of their parents and to the place and rituals of Aryaloka. During Young Sangha, children will participate in a variety of age appropriate activities that will:

  • Bring them together in companionship and friendship.
  • Introduce them to the practice of meditation that can serve as a source of strength, growth and comfort as they begin their own journey of self discovery.
  • Give them opportunities to learn and practice Buddhist values such as kindness, generosity, and truthfulness.
  • Connect them with the beauties of nature that surround the Aryaloka grounds.
