Kadampa Meditation Center – New York – National Kadampa Temple in the Catskills

Our National Temple, the Kadampa Meditation Center New York, is located in Glen Spey, New York, near Port Jervis, just two hours outside of New York City. Personally designed by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, based on the mandala of Buddha Heruka, and containing a magnificent shrine with beautiful Buddha statues, reliefs and paintings, the temple is an inspiring and holy object.

The resident teacher at the Kadampa Meditation Center is Western Buddhist monk, Gen Samten. He has been studying, practicing and teaching Buddhism for many years under the guidance of Ven. Geshe-la. Gen Samten’s teachings are clear and heartfelt. Visit KMC New York’s new-window website for more information.

We organize regular retreats at the Kadampa Meditation Center (KMC). We are fortunate to be able to offer such a serene and blessed environment for students to take the Dharma deeply to heart.

Our next away meditation course in the Catskills will be the weekend of April 6-8, 2018. Find more information on the weekend retreats & courses page.
