"Take time to stop. Take time to breathe. Take time to relax and enjoy. Constantly ask yourself where is my mind? Am i aware of it? Am i awake? Gently bring the mind back to the present moment. Be gentle with yourself. Be patient".
Ven. Edo Shonin & Ven. William Van Gordon
Taking Some Time!
Welcome to the Bodhayati Vihara School of Buddhism. The Bodhayati School of Buddhism was founded by Ven. Edo Shonin and Ven. William Van Gordon and is made up of practitioners from most of the major Buddhist traditions as well as from many non-Buddhist religions. We operate on an entirely all welcome basis and provide a regular timetable of classes, courses, Dharma talks, Sangha days and festivals at different venues throughout the city.
