BuddhaName.org is an Online Zendo; and is home to the Awakened Heart Community and Buddhaheart Fellowship of Tasmania. We practice Nien-Fo Ch’an (unified Ch’an “Zen” and Pure Land Buddhism), and have a particular focus on community service.

Buddhaheart Fellowship is affiliated with CloudWater Zendo, the Zen Centre of Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.

BuddhaName is a term used to refer to the ancient practice of Buddha-Name Recitation. This vocalized meditative practice is the concentrated and heartfelt repetitive recitation of the Buddha Amitabha’s name.  This recitation of the Buddha-Name flows from our mind and heart like waves continually washing ashore. In this way, ultimately our ignorance and karmic defilements are gradually worn away, enabling us to become one with Boundless Compassion and Wisdom.
