A Saturday morning overview of the Perfection of Giving and guided meditations on the topic. Start the weekend right.
A unique and unusual opportunity to go deep within, contemplating Buddha’s most profound teachings. Based on the Fall Festival 2019 oral instructions, we will explore different levels of union, especially the highest level – the union of appearance and emptiness.
KMCSF was the first Kadampa Center established in the USA since 1991. In our peaceful city sanctuary, Buddha's teachings are presented in an accessible manner that can easily be integrated into busy modern life. Our teachings are based on the books of the modern day meditation master and Buddhist teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. We now offer online streaming.
