Partnered with the town of Fanwood NJ, Dhammakaya Meditation Center offers a serene and beautiful meditation garden. For those who prefer practicing meditation outdoors, surrounded by a tranquil atmosphere, our garden is the perfect place. Whether you choose to sit on a bench while indulging in the pleasing sounds of a waterfall, or sitting crosslegged on a cushion you can do whatever pleases you.
Some individuals prefer a walking meditation around the garden perimeter or our foot massaging labyrinth. Wouldn't you like to give yourself the opportunity to experience inner peace through meditation?
In addition to practicing meditation, our garden has also served local and surrounding communities for years with various kinds of special occasions like kids & teens day for meditation introduction, open house day, one-day retreat, and co-hosting with the town of Fanwood for world peace candle lighting event.
For those who prefer a traditional classroom style and instructor led practice, our main meditation hall is open to public on Tuesday 7:00-8:30 pm (including brief chanting) and Saturday 3:30-4:30 pm (walk-ins welcome) for free meditation classes. These classes are generally led by a Buddhist monk. On some special occasions, we also offer Buddhism seminars or lectures instructed by experienced monks or a professional meditation instructor who has experience conducting a joint youth program with the Fanwood - Scotch Plains YMCA.
