Becoming a member of AKBC helps you, and it helps the Center. Our goal is to benefit others in our area through sharing the benefits of meditation and Buddha’s wisdom.

These fees stay here, enabling us to share these precious teachings with others in our area, helping them find the tools to solve their human problems and experience peace of mind.
