Kadampa Meditation Center New York City
127 West 24th Street, New York, NY
(Entrance on street-level, between 6th and 7th Ave.)
The Kadampa Meditation Center NYC Buddhist shop is an excellent resource for books on Buddhism, ritual items, and accessories. We are affiliated with Tharpa Publications, a non-profit corporation that publishes books on Buddhism and meditation by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
We supply audio CDs, Buddhist art, and Sadhanas for prayer and meditation. Books are available in English, as well as in many other languages. The KMC-NYC shop also carries a wide selection of Buddha statues, shrine items (such as offering bowls) and ritual items (such as malas, vajras, and bells). Meditation cushions and zabutons are also available for purchase. Accessories, from jewelry and hand-made book covers to incense and journals, complement Buddhist practice and make excellent gifts.
About Kadampa Meditation Center NYC
Located in the heart of Chelsea, Kadampa Meditation Center provides meditation classes and teachings throughout NYC and the greater New York area.
We offer evening classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and morning classes on Tuesdays, and Sundays that are suitable for newcomers. Our lunchtime meditations and after-work meditations are only a half-hour long and a great way to get a taste of meditation. We also have monthly introductory classes, Awakening the Heart and How to Meditate, as well as regular day and weekend workshops and retreats.
