Since establishing “Wat Buddhametta: Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center” in 2010, the monastery and center has been faithfully serving the Tucson community. People come here to find Buddhism and to find other services for their physical and mental health.

This year, we will host a special celebration for the Tenth-year anniversary of the establishment of Wat Buddhametta. Please bring your family and friends. The celebration is free and all are welcome.

Our special celebrations always include the giving of alms and the serving of lunch to the monks and nuns. This is followed by lunch for all who attend. For the alms offering, you may bring food (rice, fruit, or snacks) for the monks' alms bowls. For lunch, you may bring a prepared dish to share. After lunch, our abbot will give a talk explaining the meaning of the day's celebration followed by a blessing. The celebration will conclude at 2:00 p.m.

2020 Mortgage Fund Raising Campaign

This year, 2020, we are planning to raise money to pay down the Wat’s mortgage by a total of $20,000. In order to reach our goal for this year, we have divided this amount into 200 shares of $100 each. If you would like to help in this fundraising campaign, please consider doing so at the ceremony,

For checks, please make your donation payable to “Wat Buddhametta” or “Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center”. For online donations, please visit our website: http://www.tucsonbuddhistcenter.org
We also accept cash donations.

The monastery is solely dependent upon your generous donations. If you would like to help with financial donations, please do so whenever you are so inspired.
