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.


Mahakaruna Kadampa Buddhist Center is one of over 1200 Kadampa centers and branches now established throughout the world. We offer in-person and online meditation classes for all levels of interest and experience.
