Welcome to Our Community

Portland Friends of the Dhamma is a Buddhist city-centered refuge. We are a community of lay parents and kids sitting on floor listening to someone speakBuddhists inspired by the Buddha’s teachings of Morality, Concentration and Wisdom. We seek to cultivate the path that leads to the maturing of these virtues by providing teachings through our programs and events. We provide contact with and seek guidance from the monastic sangha and lay teachers. Our foundation rests upon the teachings stemming from the Ajahn Chah lineage. We are advised and well supported by this lineage through the counsel and guidance of Luang Por Pasanno of the Abhayagiri monastic sangha and its branch community, the Pacific Hermitage.
