"Pleasure, joy, grace, happiness, faith, abundance, infinite knowledge--all is available to those who surrender to 'The Path of Purification' (the title of a well-known work by Buddhaghosa, written in the 5th Century A.D.)."---Rev. Dr. Albert Gani

The Church of the Path(R)

Who We Are

The Church of the Path® celebrated its 30th anniversary December of 2016. The Church was formed in 1986 by Reverend Dr. Albert Gani and a group of like-minded friends in McAllen, Texas.

The founders of this new church wanted more than misinterpreted parables, threats of hell and damnation or the platitudinal teachings of positive thinkers. They hungered for practical self-renewal, true spiritual rebirth, and a setting where they could find their own spirituality.

Our Beliefs

Create Your Own Reality   -   Linking the Inner with the Outer


The Church of the Path is a nondenominational church in Austin, Texas that blends Eastern and Western spirituality, philosophy, and psychology.

Self-cleansing involves the search for "the beam in thine own eye" (Matthew 7:3) before blaming others and outer circumstances for what is happening in your life. How have we created the situations in which we find ourselves involved?
We must link what is within us with what is outside of us.

The relationship between the perceiver and the perceived defines consciousness according to Chinese thinkers and later to Western thinkers

For over 35 years Reverend Dr. Albert Gani has helped people find  purpose and meaning  in their lives, motivating them towards the pursuit of happiness through ethics and faith. His work has taken him from coast to coast in the United States, as well as Europe and Mexico.
