The Vision

The Sacramento Dharma Center Board aspires to create a sanctuary and community practice center where Buddhist meditation groups (known as sanghas) practice, following their diverse traditions, and offer programs, classes and retreats under one roof. We have been inspired by similar projects in other parts of the country and feel this is the new face of Western Buddhism – a place for lay practice that embraces diversity.

Mission Statement

Sustaining Sanghas

The founding Sustaining Sanghas are Sacramento Buddhist Meditation Group, Valley Streams Zen Sangha, and Sacramento Insight Meditation. These groups have common roots and have worked together for several years on this project. Sustaining Sanghas are non-profits who provide programs supporting meditation and Buddhist teachings, support the SDC mission, and agree to sharing the Dharma Center space.

The Organization

Sacramento Dharma Center is a California Charitable 501(c)(3) organization created to develop and maintain a dedicated space, and provide support for, meditation-based Buddhist groups in the Sacramento area. Incorporated in March of 2012, we began our Capital Campaign that October. We continue our search for a suitable location where we can nurture our practice and serve the Sustaining Sanghas.
