Creating Authentic Happiness One Mind at a Time

This is Modern Buddhism

The practice of timeless Buddhist wisdom in the heart of NYC

Buddha’s most profound insight into the nature of the mind remains as revolutionary in our modern world as it was 2500 years ago: the mind is the source of all happiness and suffering. All of it.

At KMC NYC, this is what we learn - in a very practical way. So that through meditation, we can cultivate authentic happiness, and actualize our greatest potential, and help others do the same.

...and we do it all right here in New York City, thanks to the extraordinary teachings of our founder, Buddhist meditation master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Everyone is welcome! We do not discriminate based on race, gender, background, age, religion, politics, sexual orientation, or otherwise — everyone is always welcome at KMC NYC and other Kadampa Centers around the world.

Everyone is welcome to attend any of the 20+ drop-in classes offered each week, in-person ans online. It's in these classes that Buddha's methods for cultivating deep inner peace and happiness are explored

Quiet New York City

Where can you go in New York City when you need to just sit and enjoy some quiet time or some personal meditation?

Our atrium is the perfect place to take a breather and is available any time we're open. Use it for reflection time, reading, or simply catching back up with yourself. Our downstairs meditation room is also available to you any time class is out.
