We welcome you and invite you to explore our site and visit our monastery to learn about the teachings that the Buddha has offered us so that you may find peace in your life. We offer weekly Sunday services, retreats and workshops, as well as special events and spiritual counseling.
MABA is located on 60 acres of rolling hills and woodlands in Augusta, Missouri, about 45 minutes west of St. Louis. Please visit us for our weekly Sunday services.
Weekly services are held every Sunday morning and includes classes, meditation, chanting, a dharma talk and a potluck vegetarian lunch.
MABA also functions as a retreat center at certain times of the year. Please visit the Events & News section for upcoming events.
