The Ottawa Buddhist Society serves Theravada Buddhists of all backgrounds in and around Ottawa, Canada’s Capital.

All who support the Society and its objectives are welcome to Society activities:
meditation retreats, days of mindfulness, Friday evening meetings at 91A Fourth Avenue
Dharma study groups and to become members.

The OBS focuses primarily on Buddhist teachings in the Theravada tradition as practised in the forest monasteries in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Burma.

“A way of talking about transcendence, liberation or however you
conceive of a spiritual path, is to use the metaphor of ‘crossing the
floods.’ Interest in deep change gets triggered by the feeling of
being swept along by events; by the sense of being overwhelmed
by, and even going under, a tide of worries, duties and pressures.
That’s the ‘floods.’ And crossing them is about coming through all
that to find some firm ground. It takes some work, some skill, but
we can do it. This book offers some guidelines and themes for
practice that can get us fit for the task.”
