Our founder is the teacher, Siddhartha Gautama, born in India more than 2500 years ago. Lord Buddha taught a way of living and thinking by which one can find lasting peace.
Buddhists believe nothing is permanent,
and the world exists in constant change. Something real exists,
however, beyond all the suffering in this world: the sense
of peace. Lord Buddha reached the ultimate state of peace
called nirvana, and everyone can find this state of peace
in his or her own heart.
Everything we do, speak, and think has
an effect. This law is called karma. Therefore, to bring peace
in our lives, we should live, speak, and think about peace.
Hurt not others with that which pains you.
