At first I was hesitant about spending money for Buddhist teachings, when so many are free online. But this site is unique and unlike any other. Due to the thorough explanations, meditation challenges, encouragement and support, my progress is leaps and bounds over where I was just six months ago!

As a member, you'll receive the tools and resources you need to get clarity and infuse the Buddha’s teachings into your life so that you can make progress – in life and in meditation. You’ll also become part of a thriving community of like-minded people who can offer insight, advice, and support as you move your practice forward.

Mindah’s teachings are deep, yet accessible thanks to her humourous way of presenting things. I love that she will answer any question in the monthly Q&A sessions, no matter its depth. Because of the monthly meditation challenges, my meditation was saved from falling apart. And when you join, you’ll get a sangha, making you feel less isolated in the Western world. It’s probably the best money you’ll ever spend!

I can thoroughly recommend joining The Enthusiastic Buddhist Society to anyone interested in Buddhism at any level. Not only are the members’ videos and Q&A sessions invaluable, both for the teachings and the practical, everyday advice, but the subscription is less than a coffee every week!

JEFF STREETS​  UK

Mindah makes herself so personally available to us that is unlike other teachers, and I gain so much from listening to her talks. Her engaging personality, her wealth of knowledge about Buddhism and her ability to share from her own experiences while tackling a range of subjects makes her teachings so informative and applicable to daily life. I am surprised the cost of membership is so low, considering the wealth of information, the support and the direct interaction one has with her.

About Mindah-Lee Kumar


I’m Mindah, the creator of The Enthusiastic Buddhist. I’ve been practicing Buddhism for over ten years. In that time, I was ordained as a Buddhist nun for three years and spent a total of three years in solitary meditation retreat.

Despite my training, I know how hard it is to stay motivated and consistent in your meditation practice and how overwhelming the Buddha's teachings can be, especially when there is so much we can learn.


Following my retreat, I created a YouTube channel called The Enthusiastic Buddhist, with the aim of offering simple, practical and inspirational teachings on Buddhism. These were to help people quickly implement the Buddha's teachings into their lives and inspire them to start and continue their meditation practice.


Wishing to offer even more, I've created The Enthusiastic Buddhist Society, as a way of offering additional teachings and support. I hope you will join me in this wonderful community of people, just like you, who are seeking to achieve a mind filled with unconditional love, compassion, and wisdom.

Mindah's answers in the Q&A sessions are incredibly thorough. She doesn't just say one or two sentences and jump to the next question. Mindah has a striking ability to engage any Buddhist topic, regardless of how simple or complex it may be, and still explain it in words that are relatable and easy to understand. 

DAO. C​  Canada

The monthly Q&A sessions and the private Facebook group give a great opportunity to ask any question you might have directly to Mindah so you'll have no problem staying on track at all time. I'm convinced that Mindah's guidance can help you get your practice together too!

The Pros List

What will happen if you JOIN as a member:

  • You won't need to spend years figuring out the Buddhist teachings on your own
  • You'll finally 'get on top' of your meditation practice and make it a priority
  • You'll receive teachings from a range of Buddhist traditions so that you can choose if you actually want to pursue a specific school or tradition
  • You'll receive lots of inspirational tidbits throughout the month in our private Facebook group
  • You'll have a "safe haven" to ask your questions and get answers. Feel supported and make friends with like-minded people who are just as passionate as you are.

The Cons List

What will happen if you DON'T join:

  • You may continue to be confused, not knowing how to incorporate the Buddha's teaching into your life
  • More time will pass without you gaining all the potential benefits that come from having a consistent meditation practice
  • You'll be postponing the true happiness that the Buddha says 'arises from within' as a result of meditation
  • Your family and friends will miss out on the increased calmness and patience that comes from your practice of Buddhism and meditation

When you become a member of The Enthusiastic Buddhist Society, you're saying YES - not just to yourself, but to your family and friends as well.
Everything we do has a ripple effect. Practicing the Buddha's teachings will certainly affect our environment and the people we love the most.
Become the 'happy, wise sage of the family'.

Since joining I’ve been able to increase my meditation to 30-40 minutes a day. As a result, I am a lot less reactive during the day. I can manage stress at work a lot easier and also the temper tantrums of my youngest child. I wish I would have had these opportunities earlier.
