Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of NKT, has dedicated his life to helping people find true happiness by developing inner peace through meditation and other practices. He has designed an international education program that provides everyone regardless of nationality, age or gender with the opportunity to learn simple techniques for developing the capacity of their mind and eventually attaining the permanent inner peace of enlightenment. To date, this program has been implemented in over forty countries.
Geshe Kelsang’s compassionate intention is embodied in the International Temples Project (ITP), a unique international fund dedicated to public benefit. The ITP fosters the international development of temples and retreat centers. All these institutions provide a public service that exemplifies the Buddhist faith.
Kadampa Meditation Center Washington DC
Kadampa Meditation Center DC 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-IKBU), 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 over 40 years ago, 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 Shakyamuni.
