Avada Church is a movement of churches working together to change the nation through a network of church leaders, national gatherings, training events and resources. Giving God all the glory he deserves.

All mental phenomena have mind as their forerunner; they have mind as their chief; they are mind-made. If one speaks or acts with a pure mind, happiness (sukha) follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.

The Buddha.

Hatred is, indeed, never appeased by hatred in this world. It is appeased only by loving-kindness. This is an ancient law.

The Buddha.

Just as a mother would protect her only child with her life even so let one cultivate a boundless love towards all beings.

The Buddha.

I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me
