An Unbroken Lineage

All the meditations and teachings we share at the center come from Buddha himself. Both the instructions and the inner experience of these instructions have been preserved unchanged by an unbroken lineage of meditation masters that reaches right down to the modern day. Though the presentation of these practices has been adapted for the modern world, the essential meaning is exactly the same as Buddha taught. This is the defining characteristic of Modern Buddhism.
