Modern Buddhism in London
KADAMPA MEDITATION CENTRE LONDON (KMC London) is a centre for modern Buddhism that offers local, regional and international courses for people from all walks of life. Its principal location is the Temple for World Peace in Morden.
The centre offers a comprehensive programme of weekday classes, and courses, retreats, workshops and family activities at weekends.
All events at the centre are open to everyone and include practical courses such as how to use meditation to solve our anger problem, which lies at the root of many family problems. This activity is completely peaceful and joyful and is very important as protection against future suffering.
Modern Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings for the modern world that shows how Buddha’s advice on wisdom and compassion can benefit anyone in modern society regardless of age, race, gender or faith. Its introduction into modern society has been pioneered by the contemporary Meditation Master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
Everyone, whether Buddhist or not, can benefit from the practices of modern Buddhism, which show how to develop peaceful minds and act in peaceful ways. These practices are very important for peace in the home, peace in society and peace in the world.
