Namo Buddhaya!

Welcome to Mahamevnawa Florida

Mahamevnawa (MahA-Meu-Nawa). is a Theravada Buddhist reform movement from Sri Lanka with branches around the globe. It is our vision to establish a Buddhist forest monastery in Florida where people of all ethnicities & creeds can master their mind, develop true inner peace and uplift their lives. We started at a temporary location in 2012 and offer a wide range of courses all free of charge and supported by the community. All are welcome to join our Meditation classes and Lectures on Early Buddhist Teachings.
