Living a stress-free and meaningful life has never been closer to your fingertips. Meditation is a method to acquaint our mind with causes of happiness. Learn meditation in the company of good friends. See for yourself how Buddhism and meditation can improve quality of life.
Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center was recently established in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a member of the New Kadampa Tradition - International Kadampa Buddhist Union. This tradition is an international Mahayana Buddhist organization founded by the Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The Center offers the study and meditation programs of Kadampa Buddhism, under the guidance of our Resident Teacher, Gen Tenzin.
Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center, which holds classes throughout Philadelphia, was founded on the knowledge that it is possible for everyone to cultivate positive states of mind that will lead to calmness and inner peace. We strive to provide a conducive environment for people in Pennsylvania to deepen their understanding and experience of meditation practice and Buddhist studies. Meditation is the heart of Buddhist practice. Through meditation, we can gain deep insight into how to be happy and deal with life’s challenges successfully.
