Love Is The Answer
Healthy relationships, whether romantic or not, depend on healthy love. Learning to love wisely is a method to make ourselves and others happy.
Love protects us from anger, from jealousy, from loneliness, from creating negative karma, from experiencing daily life problems.
Love is the answer. Everybody is welcome.

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.
