Buddhist Life

Buddhist Life at Emory aims at creating opportunities for enhancing Buddhist community and practices on campus through regular programming. Buddhist Life programs focus on meditations, teachings, communities, and cultures from the various Buddhist schools and traditions. Our regular programs include bi-weekly meditations, Dharma discussions, semesterly off-campus retreats, and full moon ceremonies attended by students, faculty and staff along with Buddhist friends from the Atlanta area.

Donations to Buddhist Life will help with our communal practices such as getting more cushions for meditation, creating the new Buddhist Altar/Shrine, organizing special Dharma discussions with guest teachers, and retreats.

Our bi-weekly meditation and Dharma discussion programs attract about 30 participants on average. This regular community has become a thriving space for practice, learning, and connection among students, faculty, staff and friends.

The off-campus Buddhist retreat is increasingly popular among students. The opportunity to practice in the mountains away from internet and electronic devices attract both Buddhist and non-Buddhist students as it allows for rest, peace and community.
