The Vihara is a meeting place for like minded people who are interested in spiritual development, in particular, the development of the mind.  Whether you are a lifetime participant or new to Buddhism, we invite you to join us. 

Temple In Ottawa

Ottawa Inter-Community Buddhist Society has several resident Buddhist Monks from Sri Lanka and other Asian Buddhist Countries.  Vihara is a place for people to meet and discuss topics of interest in the area of the Buddha's teachings otherwise known as Dhamma. 

A Buddhist monk is a person who has renounced the typical worldly life style in favour of a life style that facilitates the unhindered development of the mind.

We welcome new ideas and value enthusiasm from members and volunteers, new and old.  Donations are greatly appreciated.
