Buddhism is a living spiritual tradition based on two thousand years of teachings first transmitted by the Shakyamuni Buddha. Using our own experience as a basis, Buddhism offers a path to explore the nature of mind and to relate more directly with our true nature. Halifax Nalandabodhi offers meditation instruction, a graduated curriculum of Buddhist study, and formal practice opportunities as methods to explore this science of mind.
