FOR CULTIVATING

ONE'S SPIRITUALITY AND HUMANITY

ABOUT WON BUDDHISM
OF HOUSTON

- Cultivating Spirituality, Health, and Balance -

Won Buddhism of Houston is a non-profit organization that welcomes anyone interested in cultivating spirituality and humanity. Our temple provides a peaceful and restorative space to learn and practice Won Buddhism and meditation. We follow the vision of Sotaesan, the founder of Won Buddhism, to live the teaching of Buddha with simplicity and commitment in our highly modern and materialitic society.

Won buddhism embraces Buddha's teaching and makes them relevant to contemporary society. Our goal is to use Sotaesan's teachings and meditation practice for practical and useful purposes, allowing us to build a One World Community and realize the oneness of life based on the Buddhist View of interdependency and interconnectedness.

Through our meditation and teachings, we can :

  • Increase our awareness and understanding of ourselves and those around us to live peacefully with wisdom and compassion.

  • See the Buddha in all things and live in accordance with this insight.

  • Uncover who we truly are.

Our temple offers meditation, mind study, and Won Buddhism studies and welcomes everyone interested, whether you are a serious practitioner, or a simply curious visitor. We also operate a small gallery and free library for the public.

"Through our practical application of Buddhadharma,

we become useful people who can help individuals,

families, societies, and nations."

SOTAESAN (1891 - 1943)
