The Jhamtse Buddhist Center was founded by Venerable Lobsang Phuntsok, a Tibetan Buddhist monk and dharma teacher.
The Jhamtse Buddhist Center is currently comprised of sanghas (a Sanskrit word meaning “community”) in eastern Massachusetts, USA who meet to help their members calm their minds and develop into better beings. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your sangha would like to join the Jhamtse Buddhist Center.
Come Explore Buddhism With Us
Even if you have no previous experience with Buddhism, consider joining one of these groups. A typical session usually starts with some chanting and meditation to help us calm our minds and focus our thoughts. Then, after a brief reading or lecture, we discuss how to apply what we have learned to our daily lives. Questions are always welcome.
We are a friendly, welcoming group — check out a session or two.
