New Kadampa Tradition

NKT-logo-smallTo provide a vehicle for promoting Kadampa Buddhism throughout the world, in 1991 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso founded the New Kadampa Tradition, the International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU).

It is an international association of study and meditation centers that follow the pure tradition of Mahayana Buddhism derived from the Buddhist meditators and scholars Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa and introduced into the West by the Buddhist Teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

‘Everyone is welcome’ are the watchwords of Modern Kadampa Buddhism.

Whether you are a Buddhist or not, you will definitely find something in the teachings and practices of Modern Kadampa Buddhism that will help you find inner peace, solve your everyday problems, and improve your relationships with others.

We are a registered non-profit charity organisation (number 1039957)
