Modern Buddhism

Modern Kadampa Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings, intended specifically for our modern world, introduced by the renowned meditation master and scholar Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. It is a practical way of living based on wisdom and compassion, which everyone can practise and integrate into their everyday life without having to change their normal life-style.

Modern Buddhism provides you with practical solutions to your daily problems such as anger, uncontrolled desire and confusion. Through practising these instructions you will discover lasting happiness by developing inner peace, and you will find a better way of relating to yourself and to others. You will also become able to help your friends, family members and others to gain the same experience.

Our Centre provides regular courses in practical meditation throughout the year and offers a friendly relaxed environment in which you can meet like-minded practitioners with the same aims as your own. For those wishing to deepen their understanding and experience of Buddhist meditation we also offer a programme of advanced study and practice.

Everyone is welcome to take part in our activities and enjoy the benefits of modern Kadampa Buddhism.
