Nagaloka Buddhist CenterWelcome to Nagaloka!

Nagaloka is a community in Portland, Maine, dedicated to the study and practice of Buddhism. We are an independent and self-governing center within the Triratna Buddhist Community, which is an international network of public centers, communities and projects. Our mission is to create the best possible conditions in which to explore and practice the Buddhist path. We study and practice meditation and Buddhadharma in a spiritual community based on the ideals of compassion, generosity, mindfulness, and the cultivation of wisdom.
