Why meditate?

Overcome stress and anxiety

Find peace of mind through practising meditation

So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind

Many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. We can reduce this stress through meditation.

Solve the problems of daily life

All the problems we experience come from the side of the mind

Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind

If we want to be free from problems we must transform our mind

Meditation gives rise to mental peace

The supreme permanent mental peace is enlightenment

Meditation is a scientific method to transform human nature from bad to good

Everybody needs to be good natured with a good heart

Modern Buddhism in London and Surrey

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.

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.

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.

About our classes

RelaxationThe weekly classes offer practical solutions to everyday problems based on Buddhist meditation techniques.

They are dynamic classes combining analysis of problems with exploration of the mind and practical meditation-based solutions.

Using the Mindfulness Toolkit, the classes begin with training in basic mindfulness and then show how to apply mindfulness to practical situations in and out of meditation.

The methods taught are based on Buddha’s teachings on the mind but can be practised by anyone, Buddhist or not.

There are no physical exercises or special postures involved. Participants sit on chairs to meditate.

These classes are suitable for all levels of experience and everyone is welcome.
