The way of the Buddha is to know yourself; To know yourself is to forget yourself; To forget yourself is to be awakened by all things. Dogen – Thirteenth Century Zen Monk


About TMS

Taos Mountain Sangha promotes the teachings of the Buddha and the practice of insight meditation.  Insight meditation is also known as vipassana and means insight or clear seeing into the nature of reality. Considered as one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation, it is attributed to Gautama Buddha.  It is a way of self-transformation through meditation and mindfulness.

Taos Mountain Sangha Meditation Center supports all actions to keep the populace safe during the Corona Virus pandemic. To that end, no in-person meetings will occur for the time being. We will meditate and share the dharma via ZOOM. Further information is available on our monthly Programs page. In this uncertain time, meditation and mindful living can offer significant support. We extend the merits of our practice to all. May you be well, be safe, and experience peace in the coming days.

At the January 5th board meeting, members felt moved to express our generosity and compassion for the Taos community during these difficult times. To that end, we approved a donation to the Taos Medical Debt Relief Program. Rev. Pamela Shephard, director of the program, is deeply grateful. She reported that our $1000 contribution has enabled Holy Cross Hospital to cancel 11 more accounts for an extra total of $33,333.333. This places the amount that Taos Medical Debt Relief was able to forgive this year to around 1.6 million dollars.

Donations for the teachers and TMS are greatly appreciated. At these online events, we continue to depend on your generosity to sustain our teachers and the teachings. Please be as generous as your circumstances allow.You can offer dana to the sangha by sending a check to Taos Mountain Sangha at POBox 2854, Ranchos de Taos, NM 87557 or by donating online at Give Butter – Taos Mountain Sangha
