The Center

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.
