Lord Buddha's teaching on meditation is very popular around the world. In Western countries, because there are many people who are becoming interested in mediation, a Buddhist temple or meditation center is the best way to learn by associating with others who can share their knowledge and experience. To locate a temple or center in your area, visit the directories provided by Buddhanet.net.

At Wat Florida Dhammaram our mission and purpose is to provide a religious sanctuary to all of those faithful and interested in the teachings of Lord Buddha. Our monastery observes religious functions of the Buddhist calendar,observes Thai cultural festivals and provides daily chanting and meditation practice. All are welcome.
