Mahakaruna KBC and Compassion KBC are 2 of more than 1200 Kadampa centers and branches now established throughout the world. We are located in Sonoma County and Sacramento, CA. Due to the pandemic, we have temporarily closed our physical locations and joined forces to offer meditation classes and resources online. We will reopen our physical spaces as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. In the meantime, please enjoy this opportunity to discover the power of meditation easily and online!

What is Kadampa Buddhism?

Modern Kadampa Buddhism is a special, systematic presentation of Buddha’s teachings particularly suited for contemporary society. This presentation preserves the meaning and intention of Buddha’s original teachings while making them clear and practical in a way that anyone can easily understand and put into practice.


"Everyone, both Buddhist and non-Buddhist, needs permanent liberation from suffering, and pure and everlasting happiness.”

– from the book Modern Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
