Our contemplative approach to education emphasizes the importance of bringing learning out of the classroom and into our hearts and minds. The DRBU community comes from a wide range of backgrounds and faiths, but we are united in our quest to imbue our day to day lives with deeper meaning.

The main university building is home to a Chan Hall where students can meditate, reflect, or pray. Both our City of Ten Thousand Buddhas and Sudhana Center campuses are home to a Buddha Hall where various spiritual practices take place.

Daily meditation and traditional Buddhist ceremony are available for students to join if they wish. Our university chaplains offer spiritual guidance for students seeking support.
