Welcome to Lone Star Buddhist Meditation Center
We are a Theravada Buddhist center located just outside of beautiful Tomball, Texas. Our mission is to share the teachings of The Buddha to anyone who may be interested. We do this by offering free meditation classes, Dhamma discussions, a book discussion group, and availability to talk one-on-one about any questions you might have. When visiting, or attending meetings, you will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, acceptance of all faiths, and an ample opportunity to learn more about yourself. We hope that by sharing the teachings of the Buddha, you will find a path toward building a more joyful and compassionate life, for yourself, and those you hold dear.

What is Buddhism
Buddhism is different than the other major world religious traditions because it is not oriented around God but oriented around human beings, Buddhism is a philosophy, what Buddha taught is that we create our own mental suffering and the path out of suffering lies with us. Buddha explained to us that dissatisfactions or mental suffering arise because of our own mental state. Buddha taught that we suffer because we crave for things, because we are focused on ego and because we assume things are permanent when they are actually temporary. We can alleviate suffering by changing our perception of ourselves and our world by recognizing that everything is temporary even ourselves. Read More >>
