Who we are?
Located in Port Jefferson, Suffolk County, New York, Established in 2008, the Long Island Buddhist Meditation Center is under the coordination of Venerable Kunegala Piyatissa Nayake Thero, the high priest of New York Buddhist Vihara, Queens Temple. The property donated by Mr. Don L. Jayamaha & Dr. Sharmini Jayamaha. The meditation conducted in these premises is being used both for the purpose of enhancing our spiritual values as well as for providing an opportunity for others with parallel aims and leanings. Long Island Buddhist Meditation Center has been designated as a tax exempt, publicly supported, charitable organization under section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code and all donations are fully tax deductible.
Join us for our weekly introduction to meditation and Dharma talks by Bhante Kottawe Nanda Head Priest of LIBMC. These evenings features meditation instruction, a short period of meditation and refreshments. We offer meditation programs, a core curriculum of Buddhist teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices. Meditation and mindfulness is less about achieving a peaceful state of mind than rolling up our sleeves and experiencing life directly.
We invite you to explore our diverse meditation programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent clarity, gentleness and humor. All are welcome; newcomers as well as seasoned practitioners. Bring a friend!
