Open Gate Sangha

About Us

Open Gate Sangha Office BuildingOpen Gate Sangha supports those who sincerely yearn for peace and freedom by providing access to the teachings of Adyashanti and Mukti. Our ultimate purpose is to serve the awakening of truth.

Founded in 1996 in the San Francisco Bay area, Open Gate Sangha today reaches people around the world who are called to explore the truth of their own being through Adyashanti’s and Mukti’s teachings. Our small staff and many dedicated volunteers host talks, weekend intensives, and silent retreats, coordinate Adyashanti’s and Mukti’s travel plans and events, produce a wide range of publications, develop and maintain websites, and make audio, video, and written teachings available online.

Above all, we at Open Gate Sangha remain committed to letting truth be our guide—the truth that looks out from everyone’s eyes, and sees only itself wherever it looks.

“Serving the Truth becomes our life instead of just an isolated event. It takes the abstractness out of spirituality. That’s the opportunity of real spirituality: to be in service to the silence of the heart.” ~ Adyashanti
