Open Gate Sangha, Inc.

ManjushriOpen Gate Sangha supports the teachings of Adyashanti by making them available to all who sincerely yearn for peace and freedom. Our ultimate purpose is to serve the awakening of truth.

Founded in 1996 in the San Francisco Bay area, Open Gate Sangha today reaches people around the world who are naturally drawn to the sincerity and depth of Adyashanti’s message—and most of all to his emphasis on truth, and not the teacher.

Our small staff and many dedicated volunteers coordinate Adyashanti’s travel plans and events, produce a wide range of publications, maintain this website, and make Adyashanti’s teachings available online.

Above all, we remain committed to letting truth be our guide—the truth that looks out from everyone’s eyes, and sees only itself wherever it looks.

Open Gate Sangha, Inc. is a nonprofit, tax–exempt organization. All donations to Open Gate Sangha are tax-deductible. Retreat and Intensive fees are not considered donations.

“Serving the Truth becomes our life instead of just an isolated event. It takes the abstractness out of spirituality. That’s the opportunity of real spirituality: to be in service to the silence of the heart.” ~ Adyashanti
