Our Buddhist Practice Group (BPG) of Rocky Hill serves Wethersfield, Cromwell, Newington, Berlin, New Britain, Middletown areas. We are an affiliated community of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship of Connecticut. We were founded in the year 2003 by our BFF Practice Leader, Mr. James Plourde.

A PLACE FOR FELLOWSHIP  We offer a caring, spiritual and open environment that naturally creates healthy relationships between the members of our spiritual family. With our regular gatherings, practice groups, social events, etc. there is a place for you too.


A PLACE FOR LEARNING We are engaged in the study of the whole of Buddhism but place more focus on Shin Buddhism, which is designed for ordinary working people with busy schedules.


A PLACE FOR PRACTICE Every gathering is an occasion for spiritual refreshment full of blessings and inspiration. Our primary reason for meeting together is to practice the dharma, and to awaken to the Oneness of reality.

Our practice group gatherings deeply explore the heart and mind in order to awaken to the Oneness of reality, symbolized as Amida Buddha. So that we can deepen our appreciation, knowledge and experience of the Shin Buddhist teachings and practices, we use readings from various Buddhist books and multimedia. We offer weekly studies of the Buddhist teachings in a comfortable home setting.  


Though our sangha focuses more on the study and practical application of the Buddhist teachings, sometimes, our gatherings include some quiet sitting and voice meditation but we always offer plenty of discussion, fellowship and refreshments. James and the Buddhist Friends want you to know that you are invited to join them in practice.
