Insight Meditation Community Houston (IMCH) is a supportive community for anyone who wishes to learn mindfulness and insight meditation practices and integrate them into their daily life.


The Mariposa Sangha offers weekly meditation, book discussions, beginning meditation instruction and Dharma talks. There are experienced meditators available to provide instruction. We collaborate with other Texas sanghas to offer retreats in Central Texas with visiting teachers from Spirit Rock in Woodacre, CA and Seattle Insight Meditation Society (SIMS). We enjoy occasional potlucks, Buddhist Movie Night and other social activities. Newcomers are welcome.


The vihara offers Dhamma teachings, meditation practice, Buddha pujas, and other activities in the Theravada tradition.  The resident monk, Ven. Rahula Pinnagoda, is a native of Sri Lanka.


Carolina Buddhist Vihara provides a home in a quiet neighborhood in Mauldin for one or two monks at a time. They live in accordance with the ancient Vinaya strict code of monastic discipline. The monks divide their time each day between personal development in seclusion and offering services to the general public.
