Group Description

The Sasana is intended to be a place where those of us who have accepted Buddhism as a way of seeing the world can discuss and practice it without what one of our respondents has called the "dross of 2500 years." Through the centuries, Buddhism has become an amalgamation of folk beliefs as well as traditional wisdom. The central principles (The Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path) taught by its founder, however, are as true and valid today as they ever were. We are hoping to practice Buddhism without the baggage.

The community lives in a large and active mailing list. If you have a sincere interest in learning and living the Dharma, you are welcome to join us. Please keep in mind that the list generates a large volume of e-mail, sometimes as many as a hundred messages a day. Please do not subscribe if this will become a problem, as it might on a computer in your workplace or on a system you share with someone else.

Members of the group come from many nations and many backgrounds. Some were raised in Buddhist traditions; most have chosen a Buddhist path later on. Many do not call themselves Buddhist at all. We differ in our practices and understanding of the Dharma, but we share a respect for all Buddhist traditions and teachings. Please explore our site.

May you be filled with loving kindness. May you be well.
