CENTER PROJECTS

CENTER PROJECTS

To make the precious teachings of Buddha available equally to everyone in the world Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche envisioned a Kadampa center in every major city.

These centers offer a range of local facilities where people can receive teachings, practice meditation, meet like-minded people, acquire books and meditation supplies, enjoy dining in a World Peace Cafe and much more.

There are presently hundreds of such centers around the world and many more are planned.
