Our mission is to provide opportunities for everyone to develop peaceful and loving minds through meditation retreats and classes on Kadampa Buddhism. As Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition, says:

Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.

This is our community service, giving people the means for developing inner peace.

We are a registered charitable organization (#CC27862) and we rely on your help to continue making Dharma available to the people of the Wellington Area. Your participation is valuable and important – a gift of any size, no matter how small, makes an impact!

If you feel Kadampa Meditation Centre Wellington is contributing to your life, and you believe in what we are doing, please consider making a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated. In particular, 20 October is Work a Day for World Peace where you can consider giving a day’s wage towards building world peace. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
