Our Tradition, the New Kadampa Tradition
This center is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU), a Mahayana Buddhist tradition founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso that is derived from the Buddhist meditators and scholars Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa.
NKT is an association of study and meditation centers dedicated to helping people everywhere find meaning and purpose in their lives, and to the developing of genuine inner peace and happiness. Putting Buddha’s teachings into practice in the context of our family and work commitments, we discover they are unsurpassed methods to resolve daily difficulties and problems. There is absolutely no prerequisite that attendees of Kadampa Centers consider themselves Kadampas or even Buddhists.
Rapidly growing, our Kadampa community is an international family, offering support, inspiration and encouragement for this joyful and profound spiritual path at centers around the world.
