Saddhamma Meditation Society (SMS) is a non-profit organization which was formed for the purposes of providing religious training of Buddhism and Vipassana meditation under the guidance of the Venerable Khippa-Panno Kim Trieu Mahathera in the Central Virginia area. The dwelling situates on a sixteen (16) acres of forest land. 

Our vision is to cultivate this dwelling into a forest refuge for Buddhist monks, nuns and yogis who would like to have intensive training from long weekend to special long retreats. Currently, this center is operated by Buddhist monks and volunteers. Our center is non-profit organization. Thus all service, food and lodging are free of charge. We solely operate on pledge of donation from supporters and yogis who have attended the prior retreats. The center is still at an infant stage and it needs a lot of helping hands both physically and financially. Your monthly membership fee will help paying the utilities bills in order to maintain the facility. If you are willing, we have several committees attached for you to be inspired and participate. Your lending hands will help the facility operating smoothly and efficiently. In turns, all yogis can have productive and comfortable retreats. 

Please be a member and lend your helping hands to make this forest refuge a school to cultivate wisdom, a sanctuary to nourish the love and compassion which Buddhism is all about.
