Yale Buddhist Life


Buddhist Life at Yale operates under the auspices of the Yale Chaplain’s Office. We are located in the heart of the University on Old Campus. Our community provides the opportunity to learn about Buddhist teachings and practice meditation. Twice-weekly evening meetings for undergraduate and graduate students include guided meditation, study and discussion, and we regularly host established Buddhist teachers from across traditions to share their teachings. We are a culturally diverse group that welcomes the curious, beginners, experienced Buddhists, and those of other religions equally. We deeply value the role of friendship and community in supporting a thoughtful spiritual path of wisdom and compassion. Come be a part of the vibrant Buddhist community at Yale!
