New Jersey Buddhist Vihara and Meditation Center

New Vihara

New Building

New Jersey Buddhist Vihara is home to the largest Statue of Buddha in Meditation (Samadhi) posture in the Western World. The Statue was unveiled in Sep 2009. This location receives a large number of visitors on a daily basis.

The current Temple building is grossly inadequate to provide the meditation instructions and to meet the spiritual needs of the attendees. Plans have been developed to construct a New Temple premises to serve the spiritual needs of those who seek Meditation Instruction and Intellectual Dhamma discussion in this very serene & wooded location, not too far from bustling metropolis of New Jersey. The new building will house a Meditation and Assembly Hall, A library to be stocked with reference material & Buddhist publications and Residential accommodation for the monks. Meditation trails will be developed in the wooded back portion of the Temple land. Once completed, this venue will be a resource center for Meditation and Spiritual discussion & learning in greater New York/ New Jersey/ Pennsylvania area.
