Dharma Treasure Buddhist Sangha
The vision of Dharma Treasure is a humane, balanced, global community of compassionate and awakened individuals.
The mission of Dharma Treasure is to offer understanding, realization, and embodiment of the teachings of the Buddha integrated with a modern, progressive scientific perspective.
Welcome! We are a community of people interested in Buddhism and meditation. We regularly meet to learn about the Dharma and meditate under our teacher, Upasaka Culadasa. Our group is centered in Tucson, AZ, USA, but we have many members from all over the world who attend retreats with us and follow along online.
What students appreciate most about Culadasa is the incredible clarity, detail, and depth of knowledge that he brings to teaching meditation and Buddhism. This website is the exclusive home to the vast audio archive of his Dharma talks and discussions. All are free for you to download or stream. Also available elsewhere on the site is the latest information about Culadasa’s schedule, including retreats, weekly teachings, and other events in the Dharma Treasure community.
Culadasa’s Comprehensive Guide to Meditation
A note from Culadasa about The Mind Illuminated
Dear Dharma Friends,
I am delighted to report that the book has been big hit with the meditation community world wide. It will soon be released in the U.K., Germany, Korea & Spain as well. I thank you especially for your support.
The book is receiving accolades with over 100 five star reviews on Amazon; there are active discussions on Reddit and other online communities. I sincerely hope you personally find The Mind Illuminated useful.
Special thanks to my co-authors Matthew and Jeremy. We wrote and rewrote every chapter many times, striving for maximum clarity and usefulness, and found creative ways to graphically illustrate both subtle inner experiences and abstract ideas.
In joy and service,
