About the Rocky Mountain Buddhist Center

The Rocky Mountain Buddhist Center is an autonomous center of theĀ Triratna Buddhist Community, a worldwide Buddhist movement dedicated to expressing the Buddha’s teaching in ways appropriate to the modern world.

Most of the activities of the Rocky Mountain Buddhist Center are held at the Center, located at 540 Second Street West, near downtown Missoula, Montana. In addition to rooms for meditation and meetings, the Center also has a bookstore and a library of books and tapes. Instruction in meditation and Buddhism is given regularly, at levels appropriate for beginners as well as experienced practitioners.

Sangha Night is a monthly event at the center. Sangha means “spiritual community” and refers to all those who are striving to put the Buddhist principles of awareness and love into practice in their lives. Anyone who has taken an Intro to Meditation and Buddhism class at the center is freely invited to come to Sangha Night, where we explore different topics and their connection to life and practice. Sangha Night is the first Wednesday of each month from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The Center also offers intermittent classes, retreats, talks, and other opportunities to practice. For current events please check our Programs page.
