About Us

The Winding Path Tendai Buddhist Sangha is a meditation group in the heart of Springfield, MA. We are a small but growing community who support each other in our meditation and Buddhist practices. We always welcome new members or visitors. Whether you are an experienced meditator or someone who is just curious about Buddhism, please feel free to stop by and join us one evening.

Every Thursday at 5:00 pm, we offer meditation services at the historic Christ Church Cathedral in the Quadrangle-Mattoon Street Neighborhood. In addition we offer occasional Sunday services and walking meditations at alternate locations. Services are free of charge, but donations are welcome.

Jizo is one of Japan's most beloved Bodhisattvas. A Bodhisattva is one who achieves enlightenment but postpones Buddhahood until all can be saved.

New members are always welcome. On your first visit, one of our sangha members will offer an orientation and will answer any questions you have.
