About Us

Keajra Kadampa Buddhist Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose aim is to help others find inner peace through meditation and practical advice from Buddhist wisdom.  We are a member center of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT), a global association of more than 1,100 Buddhist Centers and branches that follow the teachings of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.  Although Geshe Kelsang established the NKT in the West in the early 1980s, the Kadampa teachings themselves are more than 1,000 years old and can be traced back in an unbroken lineage of spiritual masters to Buddha.
