Kadampa Meditation Center New York
International Center for Meditation & Modern Buddhism
Kadampa Meditation Center New York is an internationally renowned center for meditation, where everyone is welcome to enjoy a peaceful environment or join in the many programs offered throughout the year. Whether you are looking for a day visit to the World Peace Temple, the 82 acre grounds and nature trails, an introduction to Buddhist meditation, or in depth courses and retreats, KMC New York offers an enjoyable and meaningful experience.
Established as a perfectly qualified place for retreat, every year KMC New York’s International Winter Retreats offer 10 consecutive weeks of in-depth meditation and practice which provide Kadampa practitioners from around the world the rare opportunity to gain deep insight into Venerable Geshe-la’s blessed oral instruction teachings.
Due to our Annual Winter Retreats, the Temple and property is closed to the public. We will reopen March 16 to general visitors and guests. On Sundays, the Temple, Cafe & Bookstore will be open from 9am-2pm for Prayers for World Peace which is a free meditation class.
The Temple and the beautiful 82-acre grounds are open to the public on most days of the year, except when a major event is being hosted. You are welcome to come visit on a day trip, schedule a group tour and meditation, or join us for one of our many classes, retreats or events.
