Welcome to Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery of California


The Mahamevnawa Meditattion  Monastry of California is a branch of Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery in Sri Lanka. Mahamvenawa California will provide a quiet, peaceful refuge for all humanity (both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike) with facilities that promote meditation, personal reflection, and spiritual growth. It is our goal to lessen, and inevitably eliminate, the suffering of all beings. We will emphasize the universal teaching of the Buddha that can be applied to modern life. We encourage everyone to take what they can use, nothing more. We offer the following services, free of charge, to members and guests of the Mahamvenawa Meditation Monastry of California.

Mahamevnawa (MahA-Meu-Nawa). is a Theravada Buddhist reform movement from Sri Lanka with branches around the globe. It is our vision to establish a Buddhist monastery in California where people of all ethnicities & creeds can master their mind, develop true inner peace and uplift their lives. We started at a temporary location in 2010 and offer a wide range of courses all free of charge and supported by the community. All are welcome to join our Meditation classes and Lectures on Early Buddhist Teachings.
