Opening a Door to Inner Peace

in Downtown Columbia

2000 Park Street (enter on Calhoun Street)

Dear Friends,

We are very happy to let you know that Kadampa Meditation Center South Carolina will rent a new space in downtown Columbia!  In November, we’ll open our doors at 2000 Park Street.

Our aim is to offer a place of refuge in the city where folks can develop and maintain peaceful minds through simple, practical meditation methods.

“Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.”  — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Everyone Welcome
