Group Description

May all beings - without limit, without end, be well and happy.

Buddhist Cosmology divides the Universe into three realms:
kamadhatu - the realm of desire
rupadhatu - the realm of form
arupyadhatu - the formless realm

In kamadhatu is Mount Meru which is surrounded by four islands. The southernmost island is called ~ Jambudvipa ~ (or Rose Apple Island). This is where humans live and notably is the only location where a being may become enlightened. It is a fortunate rebirth that brings us to this human body, that brings us to ~ Jambudvipa ~. It is here that we may receive the gift of Dhamma, come to understand and know the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, realize liberation from the Wheel of Wandering On....

~ Jambudvipa ~ is the mailing list of the North Carolina Buddhist Association. It is a meeting place when we are not meeting on the peaceful grounds of Wat Carolina Buddhajakra Vanaram. All members of the Association, friends, and other wanderers, are invited to join us in practice through discussion, sharing, and friendship.
