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.
