Tharpaland Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC) is a major Buddhist center located just outside Berlin that offers courses in meditation and modern Kadampa Buddhism at local, national, and international levels.
Kadampa Meditation Centre Reading is a modern Kadampa Buddhist centre based in Reading. It was established in 1993, originally in Windsor and later, in 2005, it relocated to Reading. The centre covers a large area including the Thames Valley, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey.
Located in a perfect setting, 30 min from Lisbon between mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, KMC Deuachen is the perfect location to attend courses and meditation classes and meet up with spiritual friends.
KMC Spain was born from the compassionate heart of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, who envisaged a Kadampa Buddhist Temple near Malaga. A property was acquired just outside Malaga at the foot of Sierra de las Nieves - Mountain Range of the Snows.
KMC Perth in Western Australia is the first Kadampa center in Australia. It is located in one of the most isolated cities in the world. Yet there is a flourishing center with a vibrant General Program and a well-established Foundation Program and Teacher Training Program - and a chilled, warm-hearted community.
Historically the two centers are very close because they both developed from the same seed. But more than that, the way they work together illustrates perfectly Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyato Rinpoche's vision of an International Kadampa Buddhist Union.
