welcome to Kadampa Meditation Centre Southampton

Buddha advises us not to seek happiness outside ourself but to establish it within our own mind. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

What is Meditation?

Meditation is a method of training the mind to focus and concentrate on a specific thought or attitude which causes the mind to become calm and positive. This makes us feel happy about ourselves and others in our life and helps us have the capacity to deal with daily problems in a constructive way.

In Buddhist Meditation we have thousands of different meditations for different situations. You don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from meditation.

Everybody is welcome!
