We are a Meditation Centre for Modern Buddhism that offers a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings for the modern world showing how Buddha’s advice on wisdom and compassion can benefit anyone in modern society regardless of age, race, gender or faith. Its introduction into modern society has been pioneered by the contemporary Meditation Master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
