Nagarjuna Kadampa Meditation Centre, based in Leicester, is a special place of tranquillity, relaxation, reflection and friendship. It is home to an international Kadampa Buddhist community who share a similar wish to make their lives meaningful by finding lasting peace and happiness from within and helping others to do the same.
Nagarjuna Leicester Kadampa Meditation Centre is open to the public and offers a variety of meditation classes from beginner’s classes on Monday evening to our in-depth classes on Wednesdays. We also have lunchtime classes and regular monthly events.
There is something for everyone – for both beginners and more experienced meditators alike.
