The Meditation Center of Alabama (MCA) is an affiliate of the Dhammakaya foundation whose headquarters are located at the Dhammakaya Temple in Pathum Thani, Thailand. MCA teaches the Dhammakaya, or Middle Way Meditation technique, and all instructors are ordained monks or laypeople trained directly by the Dhammakaya Temple. We teach meditation and wisdom based on the Buddhist Sutras. The knowledge of Buddhist philosophy and meditation is universally applicable to all regardless of race, religion or background. Our members are largely Christian, proving that the truths discovered by the Buddha are universally applicable to all in cultivating peace, harmony and loving kindness in the world. It is our belief that sustainable world peace will be achieved when each person is able to find inner peace.
