The New Kadampa Tradition
Kadampa Meditation Center North Carolina is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU). This is a Mahayana Buddhist tradition founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche that is derived from the Buddhist meditators and scholars Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa.
NKT-IKBU is an association of study and meditation centers dedicated to helping people everywhere find meaning and purpose in their lives, and to developing genuine inner peace and happiness. Every Kadampa Buddhist Center has a Resident Teacher who has either completed, or is studying on the Teacher Training Program.
Putting Buddha’s teachings into practice in the context of our family and work commitments, we discover unsurpassed methods to resolve daily difficulties and problems.
Our International Kadampa community come together at International Festivals and regional Dharma Celebrations to practice and encourage each other on the spiritual path. Everyone is welcome.
