Ask a Buddhist

Metta Centre has launched the “Ask a Buddhist” program with a panel of Buddhist monastics and lay practitioners who can assist with supporting our community by telephone or email. If you have a question about Buddhism, your practice or just have someone to talk to, we can connect you to a fellow Buddhist who may be able to help you through it.

Metta centre’s initiative to run this program was to connect lay people without a teacher or a community, and meet that individual’s specific needs. This allows the individual to learn and clarify their doubts and get to practice effectively, and potentially create a community for themselves.

We will do our best to connect you with someone. Please note our panels will provide general guidance only and should not be taken as definitive advice. Also, they may not be mental health professionals. If we believe that your query is beyond our scope or expertise, we will let you know and may refer you to another service instead.
