The Kadampa Temple is located in Ballard and offers a complete range of meditation courses and retreats for all levels of interest: weekly drop-in classes, day workshops, short and long retreats and in-depth study programs. There are also numerous branch locations around the Puget Sound area offering weekly introductory classes.
Kadampa Buddhism is a special tradition of Mahayana Buddhism founded by Atisha (982-1054 CE) an Indian Buddhist Master largely responsible for the reintroduction of Buddhism in Tibet in the 11th Century. Kadampa Meditation Center offers modern-day people an opportunity to develop inner peace by using Buddha's timeless advice.
Our classes tend to start right at the announced time so try to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early. If you are running late do not worry - you can still come and slip in the back without disturbing people. Please feel welcome.
