What is meditation?
Meditation is a way of calming and training our mind to be happy. It is easy to do, and something everyone can learn. Through meditation and by practising mindfulness in our daily activities, we can control our feelings and emotions, gain inner strength, let go of stress and start to truly relax.
Modern Kadampa Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s ancient teachings of compassion and wisdom that is especially suited to the people of our busy, modern world. This presentation is easy to understand and to put into practice. Everybody is welcome and no experience is necessary.
What to expect at the classes:
All the classes are taught by qualified, experienced meditation teachers.
Classes are suitable for all levels and begin with a guided meditation followed by a talk on how we can apply it to our daily life, followed by a final meditation.
The classes are based on Buddhist teachings but you don’t need to be Buddhist to attend. Seating is on chairs and you don’t need to wear any special clothing.
You can attend in person which energises our meditation practise, offers the chance to meet like-minded people and deepens our understanding by being able to ask questions afterwards.
Vajrapani Centre is a registered charity, mainly run by volunteers.
Everyone is welcome
Every year the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organises three International Festivals of modern Kadampa Buddhism taught by senior Teachers.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy teachings, empowerments and meditations on modern Kadampa Buddhism
