“How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world” (Anne Frank)

Due to the current financial crisis, A.Me.Co. has been keeping the same membership prices for years, giving access to Buddha’s Dharma Teachings to many.
Please help us, so that in 2018 the Organisation can continue spreading wisdom, love and compassion, all much needed right now.

Support A.Me.Co. to give us the necessary confidence to keep going.

Support A.Me.Co. because we are a community, and your help is a gift for everyone else.

The range in which our kindness acts is often much bigger than what we imagine.

Why Meditate


In one of his famous speeches, Sedaka Sutta, Buddha explains the need of taking care of oneself and others. He doesn’t say that the only important thing is to take care of others – as present western moralism instead preaches. It’s actually fundamental to take care of both of oneself, and others. Taking care of oneself indicates maturity, and has nothing to do with perpetual worrying about ourselves. Let’s not forget that, once we get stronger with self-care, we become more useful and are capable of paying attention to others.
