“And what, monks, is that path, that way of attaining final Nibbana without clinging? It is this Noble Eightfold Path; that is, right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right concentration. This is the path, the way for the fading away of lust.”
~ The Buddha
SN 45:41-48



From the West

  1. Take Interstate 68 East.
  2. Turn south on Hwy. 522 just before Hancock.
  3. Drive south through Berkeley Springs toward Winchester. Pass through Cross Junction and then at 4.5 miles (at Gainesboro), turn right on Hwy. 600.
  4. Go 0.3 miles, then turn left onto conjunction of Hwy. 684 and Hwy. 600.
  5. Go 0.2 miles on Hwy. 684, then turn right on Hwy. 600
  6. Go four miles, then turn right onto Hwy. 50 West.
  7. Go five miles, then turn left onto Hwy. 259 South.
  8. Check odometer after 7.4 miles. Look for "High View Grocery" on right side of the road, shortly beyond that look for Back Creek Road, which is a very small street sign off the LEFT Side of Hwy. 259.
  9. Turn left at the sign and follow the road for one hundred yards, watching for a cemetery on the left. Do not turn before the cemetery.
  10. As you pass the cemetery, turn left and stay on Back Creek Road for a mile-and-a-half (take special care as this is a winding and narrow country road with a few sharp turns).
  11. At the "T" junction turn RIGHT and continue on Back Creek Road for three miles. Look for the Bhavana Society sign on the left.

(If you missed the Back Creek Road turn off on Rt 259, drive on about three miles until you see a bridge on the left. Turn left at the bridge, drive about four miles, then turn left again to Back Creek Road and follow it for two-and-a-half miles to our driveway, on your right).
