Geshe Gelek Chodha, Resident Teacher
We are a spiritual community committed to transforming the minds and lives of individuals and societies into the highest ideals of enlightened wisdom, compassion, and skillful action through the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in the Gelugpa tradition in the lineage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Kadampa Center is famous for its emphasis on deep understanding of Buddhist texts coupled with meditation practice. Under the guidance of our resident teacher, Geshe Gelek Chodha, we offer a full range of programs that cover all aspects of the Buddhist path. We host teachings by eminent Buddhist masters, offer courses for beginning and advanced students, and provide space for individual and group meditation. Here you will find the authentic teachings of the Buddha and a community supporting spiritual growth and practice. We are part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT.)
