The Dharma is co-located with the Stupa on Baldwin Avenue in Paia. Located just mauka of the Hana Highway. There is a prayer garden and gift shop located on the grounds. Well worth the stop if you are in Paia and need a break to center yourself.

This is a nice place to recenter yourself while wandering around Paia town. Even though it is on a busy road, the space has a peaceful energy. The monk on duty was kind enough to open the prayer house and allow me to meditate. Would love to come back for services on my next visit!

The center was unfortunately closed at the time we visited. They have a gift shop and prayer garden. Both closed as we came on a Sunday. But the Center's stupa and pray wheel were wonderful. We just happen to be In Pa'ai and that is why we stopped by.

I don't know anyone who couldn't use good blessings fairly regularly and I'm no exception. Beautiful little temple. Spun the prayer wheel and hoping for the best :)

This is a wonderful spot, right in the middle of Paia, very peaceful and offers a respite from the world. Didn't get to spend much time there on this visit, but in the past I have and it is very tranquil.

The Dharma Center is small and lovely; a perfect place for a few mindful moments to appreciate life, enjoy the walking medication of turning the prayer wheel and experience the charming and beautiful mural on the walls inside. There is also a small garden in the back to sit and relax. My gratitude to all who maintain this place.

If you are looking for peace of mind, stop by Dharma Center / Peace Stupa in Paia, blessed by H.H. Dalai Lama 14th himself. The people are friendly, and the chantng super relaxing. Open invitation to people of all walks, no cost however parking is limited. Located up Baldwin Ave about 1/4 mile from Mana Foods.
