We are a Registered Charity and offer classes in meditation in various venues throughout Norfolk and also one in Suffolk. Our classes are open to all, regardless of spiritual beliefs.

About Meditation

In his book, The New Meditation Handbook, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso explains:

"Meditation is a mind that concentrates on a virtuous object, and which is the main cause of mental peace. The practice of meditation is a method for acquainting our mind with virtue. The more familiar our mind with virtue, the calmer and more peaceful it becomes. When our mind is peaceful, we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness."

New Kadampa Tradition

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

This centre 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 that is derived from the Buddhist meditators and scholars Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa.

NKT is an association of study and meditation centres dedicated to helping people everywhere find meaning and purpose in their lives, and to the developing of genuine inner peace and happiness.

Putting Buddha's teachings into practice in the context of our family and work commitments, we discover they are unsurpassed methods to resolve daily difficulties and problems.

Rapidly growing, our Kadampa community is an international family, offering support, inspiration and encouragement for this joyful and profound spiritual path at centres around the world.

For more information please see the main Kadampa website.
