I've never been to a meditation class before what should I expect?

Our meditation classes are very accessible. You do not need to bring any mats or wear any special clothing. We provide both cushions and chairs, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.

How should I dress?

Feel free to come however you are comfortable. We ask people to remove shoes and hats when you enter the meditation room.

What do I need to bring to the class?

Nothing in particular, but some people like to take notes so you may wish to bring a notepad and pen.

If I’m a complete beginner, should I attend this class?

Yes, our Advice for Life series are perfect for everyone – no previous meditation experience is necessary and all classes are self-contained.

Do I need to be Buddhist to attend a class?

No, our classes are presented in a way that is accessible to everyone, and no religious obligation is required.

I’ve been coming to classes for a while. I really like what I hear. Is there something more I can try?

For those students who want to deepen their experience of Buddhism, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso designed the

Foundation Program (FP) (http://kadampanewyork.org/newsite/study-programs) Monday evenings in Massapequa. This is ongoing as Live Stream.

. FP allows us to become more deeply familiar with Buddhist teachings by systematically studying one of five texts on the FP curriculum.

PUJAS (Chanted Prayers) to be announce ....on 8th 10 th and 25 of each month.

Prayers for The Dying and Deceased every month to be announced.

Pujas (chanted prayers) are an important component of training in a spiritual life. They help us to still our mind, connect with the Buddhas and receive blessings. See website for Huntington and Port Jefferson Pujas

Below is the list of the pujas offered at the Port Jefferson branch ( address for Port Jefferson is Vineyard Place, 3012D East Main Street, Port Jefferson, NY) See schedules for Pujas at all branches.

All pujas are free of charge. All of our prayers and meditation practices are recited in English with CD accompaniment. These chanted prayer practices are suitable for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners.

Heart Jewel

Heart Jewel practice is the very essence of the New Kadampa Tradition of Mahayana Buddhism. By relying upon this practice, we can purify negativity, accumulate merit, and receive blessings. In this way, we will naturally overcome obstacles, accomplish realizations and we will attain a very special Dharma wisdom.

Green Tara

Green Tara is a female Buddha, whose name means Rescuer; she is the embodiment of swift compassion. If we rely upon Tara sincerely and with strong faith, she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes. Everyone welcome and invited to join us for Tara’s chanted prayer practice, Liberation from Sorrow.

Chanted Prayers for the Dying and Deceased

Powa Ceremony, a beautiful and powerful ritual practice enables us to benefit the deceased by coming together as a group and making prayers and offerings on their behalf. Everyone is welcome, please bring an offering of food or flowers if you wish.

Fulfilling Our Deepest Wishes

Online event

The dictionary tells us that a path is “a route,” or a “course of action.” Essentially, a means of getting from one place to another … from where we are now to our ultimate destination. Buddha tells us that each state of mind we experience is an actual path that is taking us somewhere. Where do we want to go? Where are we headed now? Which paths will lead us to peace and freedom? Which ones are leading to agitation, discontent and various other painful experiences? Do we feel we are stuck in a rut, doing the same things over and over and hoping for a different result? Buddha’s teachings introduce us to two powerful motivations that will propel us on our path to freedom and peace, and guide us into a wisdom that understands the true nature of things. These three together are called The Three Principal Aspects of the Path. Join Jason DeLeo on Saturday mornings at 10am as he explores how these ancient teachings can completely transform our modern lives, help us break out of our rut, and fulfill our deepest wishes. https://meditationonlongisland.org/fulfilling-our-deepest-wishes/

Daily Morning Prayers Live Stream


🙏Sometimes the most powerful thing we can do is pray and in the face of COVID-19 and numerous other sufferings, our Center continues to offer our prayers and dedications to those who need it the most. KMC-LI invites all of its members, friends, and benefactors to join us from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am for the Green Tara prayer practice called Liberation From Sorrow which is being offered as a LIVE STREAM event. “In general, prayers made by an assembly of many practitioners are very powerful and cannot be compared to the prayers of one or two people. The scriptures give the analogy of a broom. If we try to clean a floor with a few bristles we shall make little progress, but if we gather many bristles to make a broom we shall be successful.” VENERABLE GESHE KELSANG GYATSO RINPOCHE Prayer in Tibetan means Wish Path, our first intention to do ....begins with a wish. Register at website PRAYER LINKS FREE TO ALL https://meditationonlongisland.org/online-classes/ Separate Prayers times: Begin at 9:00am and/or 10:00am or both. The same link given on website on Monday’s is used all week Check each Monday. Blessings to all, be safe and be kind. 🙏
