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.

The Maui Dharma Center is just up the street from Mana Foods health food store. This Center has been blessed by the Dali Lama and you must experience the Prayer Wheel when you come onto the property that you can't miss. It's surrounded by Prayer Flags.. The Prayer Wheel is on the left and you can follow the instructions at... More

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.

This is a lovely stop on Baldwin Avenue in Paia. Stop and read the plaque on the outside gate which gives you a history of the Center and its purpose. The paintings inside are beautiful and as you walk around you'll feel a definite sense of peace and connection.

This is a small peaceful place just down the street and within walking distance from the busy street business of Paia, yet when you step onto the grounds it feels like your a million miles away. There is information and instructions outside the prayer wheel house explaining what it is and how to use it for those who may not... More
