All the practices taught at the centre come from Buddha himself. Both the instructions and the inner experience of these instructions have been preserved unchanged by an unbroken lineage of meditation masters that reaches right down to the modern day.
Though the presentation of these practices has been adapted for the modern world, the essential meaning is exactly the same as Buddha taught. This is the defining characteristic of Modern Buddhism.
The founder of KMC London is Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, a contemporary meditation master and holder of the Ganden Oral Lineage of Mahamudra, who has pioneered the introduction of modern Buddhism into contemporary society.
Venerable Geshe-la has founded over 1200 meditation and retreat centres around the world where modern Kadampa Buddhism is studied and practised.
By applying his teachings to their lives everyone, whether Buddhist or not, can learn to solve their daily problems, improve their relationships with others and follow a pure spiritual path that leads to permanent inner peace and happiness.
He is in every respect a modern Teacher for the modern world.
