SERLINGPA MEDITATION CENTER

Located in an historic building in downtown New Bedford, MA, Serlingpa Meditation Center offers a variety of classes, retreats, and Pujas (chanted prayers), which are open to everyone in the community. Whether you simply want to learn how to calm your mind and discover your own inner peace, or are looking to begin an in-depth Buddhist study program, Serlingpa offers many practical options for people of all backgrounds.

Serlingpa Meditation Center is dedicated to achieving world peace through following the Kadampa Buddhist Path. Kadampa teachings offer us special advice, so that we can learn to become happy and lead meaningful lives that have the power to greatly benefit others. It is a path of compassion and wisdom, with a great emphasis on integrating what we learn into our daily lives. You do not need to be Buddhist to benefit from Buddha’s teachings: this is ancient wisdom that remains strikingly relevant in our modern, busy lives. Everybody is welcome!

We offer ongoing meditation classes in New Bedford, Boston and Portland, ME. In addition we also hold retreats, day workshops, and special events, all of which are open to everyone regardless of background or experience.

This Center has arisen from the pure intention and vision of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition - International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT – IKBU), and is dedicated with the wish that everyone be happy and free from suffering.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
