The Harvard Buddhist Community

The HBC is a non-denominational Buddhist group serving the Harvard and Cambridge community, supporting engagement with Buddhist traditions through spiritual practice as well as academic study.

We host weekly meditations and social gatherings, and organize other Buddhism-related events throughout the school year. Our programming ranges from day-long meditation retreats, to scholarly talks, to explorations of the Dharma in its constantly evolving forms.
All experience levels are welcome at our regular meetings. Brief meditation instructions and a reading are offered at the beginning, followed by a group reflection or discussion. We semi-regularly invite local Dharma teachers and practitioners to lead our meditations, and occasionally organize group visits to local Buddhist centers.

Please email us ( to be added to our mailing list and receive our weekly emails about HBC-sponsored events and other Buddhism-related events on campus and in the Boston area. Thanks!
