"There is no evil greater than anger and no virtue greater than patience." ~ Shantideva

Anger, hatred, irritation, frustration, annoyance--these all destroy our peace and happiness. And they are all, ultimately, a choice. We can learn to respond in more positive and productive ways. Then nothing and nobody will be able to take away our peace and happiness. With patience we are as stable as a mountain.

Location ~ Greeley  

Heruka Buddhist Center in Greeley

710 Eleventh Ave, Room L30
Greeley, CO 80631

Tips on getting here

This is the old Greeley high school. It is next to the UCCC, Rec. Center, and Lincoln Park Library.

You may park in front or back. Or, there is a bus stop about 20' from the door on Eleventh Avenue at Eight St.

The easiest way to find room L30 is to enter the lower-level west doors on Eleventh Avenue, facing the Santiago's restaurant. If, instead, you go in the main doors, you will need to take the stairs or the elevator down.

NOTE: Even if you take the elevator, there are still 6 steps to go down.
