Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Association (DDMBA) was founded by the renowned scholor and teacher of Chan Buddhism, Chan Master Sheng Yen.
In the Los Angeles chapter, our goal is to share with our friends and neighbors in Southern California the wider mission of DDMBA - which is to educate the greater community about Chan. We offer free programs for beginners, as well as long time practitioners. The organization is made entirely of volunteers who share the same goal.
