During this time in our country and in our world, the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center recommits to the ethical guidelines by which the Center has been guided thus far: to be a beacon of light in the midst of efforts to divide, to be an island of love in the midst of turbulence. The Buddha’s teachings of compassion and non-harm are our guides, and we offer a refuge in which all who come to practice will be welcomed and respected.
We understand that the Buddha’s three-fold path of integrity, steadfastness and wisdom are needed more than ever, and are the very foundation for wise responses. We cultivate peacefulness, friendliness and joy, and we reach out with a message of inclusivity and safety for anyone who is at risk because of being seen as “other.” We are in this life together and we express this truth through acknowledging the inherent dignity of all sentient beings. May greed, ill will, and delusion dissolve through the greater power of kindness and compassion.
