Kadampa Meditation Centers (KMCs)

A Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC) is a special Kadampa Dharma Center that serves the local, national, and international communities.

Besides offering a full program of courses to the local community, KMCs host major gatherings such as Dharma Celebrations, National Festivals, and International Festivals.

KMCs are also home to the International Kadampa Temples, special buildings dedicated to world peace.

KMCs are non-profit organizations and all their annual profits are donated to the International Temples Project.

See the menu for information on specific KMCs around the world.
