Welcome to the Burlington, Vermont Buddhist Sangha. Our group’s practice is based in the Insight Meditation (vipassana) school of Buddhism, but everyone is welcome.

We meet Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Join us for meditation, dharma talk, discussion, and tea. You can find material from our past meetings in the Archive.

The nature of a Sangha is to be inclusive and, we believe, to actively work toward equality. To that end, we have collected some resources which you may find useful regarding anti-racism on a dedicated page.

Due to concerns about COVID19, our Sangha will be meeting online for the near future. You can join us by clicking the link in our weekly email. Please email us at burlingtonbuddhist@gmail.com to inquire about being added to the list.
