  • There's a lovely atmosphere in this World Peace Center hidden near the Delaware River. Visits and inhabitants are kind and welcoming. The food is great! Too bad the temple is not open more of the time but the worker at the cafe is really kind.
  • This beautiful Temple is a haven for finding peace and wisdom, a little bit at a time. I find that the Festivals and retreats are perfect for deepening my understanding of the teachings and receiving blesssings from the Buddhas. It is most rewarding to do this in the company of other like-minded people. If you are not too far away, attending the Sunday Prayers for Peace is a wonderful place to start.
  • Beautiful temple in a gorgeous part of the Catskills. My family visits at least once a year for a meditation retreat. The community is very kind and the teachers are inspiring. A very peaceful, calm atmosphere!
