Modern Kadampa Buddhism

Kadampa Meditation Center South Carolina 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-IKBU is an association of study and meditation centers around the world 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.  Everyone is welcome.
