Wisdom & Compassion in Action
Triratna Buddhist Community
SPECIAL NOTICE: COVID-19
June 21, 2020 – Seattle Buddhist Center is following the guidelines of King County Public Health and will be *cancelling all in-person public events held at the Center until further notice.
The Seattle Buddhist Center is part of an international Buddhist movement known as the Triratna Buddhist Community. We are dedicated to communicating Buddhist teachings in a context that is accessible for the modern Western world.
We offer a wide variety of activities using many different approaches to practice. Everyone is encouraged to participate to the degree that they feel comfortable. Although we have a strong and dedicated core membership, our approach is casual and friendly, and we are always happy to see new faces.
To receive a monthly newsletter about activities at the Center, please sign up. You may unsubscribe at any time.

As a Buddhist community, opening our hearts and minds to the lived experiences and complex relationships between blacks and whites throughout the history of the United States, which was literally created with the labor of predominantly African slaves, can help with understanding, healing, and guiding our efforts towards advocacy for change and racial justice in the present.

The Three Jewels of Triratna
Buddhism teaches that every human being has the potential to become happier, kinder and wiser – even infinitely so. The Buddha was a human being who, through these teachings, realized the Path to Enlightenment. His teachings are a means by which, through our own efforts, we too can realize our fullest potential.
The Seattle Buddhist Center is a great resource for newcomers to Buddhism. We offer ongoing introductory classes on meditation and Buddhism in a welcoming and casual atmosphere. Our introductory meditation courses are a good place to learn how to meditate, whether you consider yourself a Buddhist or not.
We invite you to our regular weekly meeting, Sangha Night. This is a time when we come together to meditate, listen to, and discuss the Dharma and how it applies to our own practice, as well as catch up with each other on what is happening in our lives. All are welcome!
