Kadampa Meditation Centre Nederland is a Buddhist Meditation and Study Centre and a member of the New Kadampa Tradition - International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU). The NKT-IKBU is a Mahayana Buddhist tradition, founded by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, that tries to help people of all backgrounds find peace and happiness by studying and practising Buddha's teachings.
KMC Nederland organizes regularly Buddhist meditation & study classes in The Hague.
The meditation classes begin with a simple breathing meditation to relax our body and mind. This is followed by some advice on how we can deal with the many challenges of our modern world based on Buddha's teachings. Each class is concluded by a final meditation on what has been discussed during the class. The classes are very suitable for everyone who wants to learn how to meditate and experience more inner peace, love and happiness by using Buddha’s timeless wisdom. Booking in advance is not necessary; everyone is welcome.
For those who wish to study Buddhism more in-depth there is also a Foundation Programme (FP) in Amsterdam. The FP comprises of five subjects from Buddha's Sutra teachings that are studied using six books by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The FP takes place on Saturdays from 11.00 - 16.00h.
Occasionally KMC Nederland also organizes day courses or half day courses.
