Visit Us

We always welcome visitors at the Dharma Center (see our Schedule). We say prayers in English and Tibetan, followed by 30 minutes of meditation. Please dress comfortably and be prepared to remove your shoes, and we have both cushions and chairs, so you may choose a seat.

The Dharma Center is located behind the house at 3003 Columbia Ave., Columbia, SC 29201 (in the Earlewood neighborhood). The house is on the corner of Florence and Columbia Aves, so it's easiest to enter from Florence.

If you're new to Buddhism

If you don't know much about Buddhism or have never meditated, we'd be glad to meet with you before our meditation or teaching to explain a little--email us at or call 803-467-7759. You can also read more on our Teachings page.

If you're visiting from a college class

Many students from local colleges and universities come to visit to experience the practice of another religion. We are happy to have you come to the Dharma Center, and to meet with you before or after our meditation to answer questions and explain what we do---email us at or call 803-467-7759.

If you've practiced another kind of Buddhism

We're always glad to have other kinds of Buddhists join us. Our regular Sunday meditation includes a few minutes of prayer and mantra, followed by 30 minutes of shamata meditation (of course, you can meditate any way you choose). If you need more information, or call 803-467-7759.
