I was ordained as a Buddhist monk in 1964. The New Jersey temple community encouraged and helped me to achieve my goals that I had in my mind when I was ordained. My first mission was accomplished when we built the Samadhi Buddha Statue.
The New Jersey Buddhist Vihara is dedicated to serve Buddhists, as well as non-Buddhists in the United States, essentially for religious, cultural and social purposes. The proposed new building, the NJBV Meditation & Activity Center, will serve everyone -- irrespective of age, gender or creed. The Meditation Center will teach and practice traditional meditation techniques, and will also be a center for intellectual pursuits, including the study and practice of meditation and inter-faith dialogue. As part of our mission, we will encourage scholars and practitioners of all faiths and denominations to visit and interact with us.
