New Car for the Monks

We had to replace the Monks subaru recently, due to it breaking down and not worth fixing ~ it would have cost more than it was worth!

We were able to donate the car to Helping Hands of America, when sold the money goes towards the charity of the Association of Blind Citizens.

If anyone is still interested in contributing towards the Car Fund, please go to our donation page, and click to donate.  Please indicate in the “additional comments” section “car fund, so we know that your kind donation has gone towards this.

You are also welcome to send a check addressed to the Redding Center for Meditation, 9 Picketts Ridge Rd, Redding, CT, 06896.  Please indicate in the “memo” section “car fund”.

Thank you for your continued support.

The story behind the Buddha Statue?

If you’ve visited the Meditation Center, you couldn’t help but notice that we have a beautiful Buddha statue. The statue was imported from Thailand and donated by a group of sincere Thai Buddhists from central Connecticut in recognition of our application for recognition by the American Thai Sangha as an official Thai wat, or monastic center.  This is also why we now have a second name on our sign: “Wat Sati-Ma.” While we are still the Redding Center for Meditation, we also now have a Thai name that indicates our official status as a Thai monastic center. In Thai, “wat” means “temple,” and in Pali, “sati-ma” means “to be mindful.”
