About UTBF - What We Offer 

"Do not go by revelation; do not go by tradition; do not go by hearsay; do not go on the authority of sacred texts; do not go on the grounds of pure logics; do not go by a view that seems rational; do not go along with a considered view because you agree with it; do not go along on the ground that the person is competent; do not go along (thinking) because the recluse is our teacher.

'When you know yourself: These things are unwholesome,these things are blameworthy; these things are censured by the wise; and when undertaken and observed, these things lead to harm and ill? abandon them...

When you know for yourselves: 'These are wholesome; these things are not blameworthy; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness', having undertaken them, abide in them."

- The Buddha Sakyamuni

Kalama Sutra

For beginning practitioners and individuals with a more general interest in Buddhism, UTBF's Dharma centers teach philosophy, meditation and specific Buddhist practices. Most of our centers are located in metropolitan areas.

For those individuals ready to delve deeper into Buddhist practice and are ready to have a more 'full-time' experience, UTBF offers offers retreat facilities for both short-term and long-term retreats.

For the monastic community, UTBF offers support and training in a monastic environment. The monastic setting is appropriate for full-time trainees and for those who aspire to be future dharma teachers.

Concurrent with our teaching activities, UTBF is actively engaged in providing spiritual guidance and educational training, and material assistance to those in need of basic healthcare and emergency relief services. These services are made possible through the support and participation of our members and through generous donations from the public.
