MABA Etiquette

Together, we strive to create an environment that is conducive to everyone’s practice. It is customary to bow to peers in greeting as a respectful gesture acknowledging the sacredness in everyone’s being. Please wear modest and neutral colored clothing, remove shoes before entering the meditation hall and practice being quiet and extra mindful as to be courteous of those concentrating in meditation.

Bad Weather

In case of inclement weather, MABA will be closed. Please check the Bad Weather Watch on news channels 4, 5 and Fox 2. We will post on there if the grounds are closed on a Sunday.
