When properly understood, Buddhism requires no belief in the supernatural, in rebirth or reincarnation. The Secular Buddhist meditation, philosophy, and ethical system leads to responsible practices based on mindfulness, compassion, charity, wisdom, and the pursuit of knowledge and meaning in life.
The Association of Mindfulness Meditation and Secular Buddhism (AMMSB) is a nonprofit organization that promotes Secular Buddhism and secular meditation by advocating, introducing, and teaching the benefits of these practices to the diverse secular communities across the United States and around the world. Our practice of Buddhism is secular because we make no supernatural claims and advocate only those practices that are consistent with or corroborated by reason and the best science available.
Our members are individuals and organizations who are Buddhists, atheists, nontheists, humanists, freethinkers, agnostics, nones, and skeptics, as well as all others who wish to practice meditation, Buddhism, and spirituality without reference to supernatural forces.
