Please note, meditation classes have moved to an online format. Please visit Kadampa.live for streaming options.
Our weekly meditation drop-in classes are taught by qualified Buddhist teachers, and are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners, and emphasize how to use meditation and subsequent practices amidst the busyness of modern, daily life. The union of Buddha’s teachings within our daily life is the essence of Kadampa Buddhism.
We offer a wide range of classes from basic introductions to Buddhist meditation, applying Buddha’s teachings to daily life issues such as anger and improving relationships, to comprehensive and in-depth study programs that reveal the entire Buddhist path to lasting happiness. We offer classes in many locations throughout Melbourne. Everyone is welcome to attend these classes and to visit our Temple in Monbulk.

“When our mind is peaceful, we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness. If we train our mind to become peaceful we will be happy all the time, even in the most adverse conditions. But if our mind is not peaceful, then even if we have the most pleasant external conditions we will not be happy. Therefore, it is important to train our mind through meditation.”.Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, The New Meditation Handbook
