Drop-in Classes at Physical Location

Will Resume at a Later Date

Everyone welcome! Meditation classes are offered on Sunday mornings, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. These classes are suitable for all individuals whatever their level of interest, from those who seek simple relaxation to those who wish to find lasting inner peace (what to expect at a class). We offer Buddha’s timeless teachings in a simple, practical way to help solve daily problems and create the real peace and happiness we all long for.

Mahasiddha Kadampa Buddhist Center has arisen from the pure intention and vision of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union, and is dedicated to the happiness and freedom from suffering of every living being. Weʼve been in Portland since 1997 offering activities such as drop-in meditation classes, day courses, retreats, and chanted prayers for the Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike.

Check our current calendar for a full listing of all the events at Mahasiddha.

THE INNER PROTECTION OF
SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE
INSPIRING ADVICE FOR

In these challenging and uncertain times everyone needs a special method to help build inner strength - the inner protection of spiritual experience.

Lamrim practice is this special method.

It is suitable for everyone and mixes easily with daily life, even during these exceptional times.

Everyone wishes for permanent liberation from suffering and pure and everlasting happiness. This wish will be fulfilled through Lamrim practice; therefore it is the real wishfulfilling jewel.

There is refuge, direction, purpose, hope and meaning in this impure world. In this special Kadampa teaching Gen-la Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT, will help us discover the joy of Lamrim practice.

This teaching will be streamed online at 14:00 UK time, but if you are not able to watch at that time the file will remain accessible for 48 hours.

Everyone around the world is welcome to this teaching. We hope you will be able to join.

Dear Mahasiddha Buddhist Center Community

We had hoped that we would be able to remain open. But due to an abundance of caution, Mahasiddha Kadampa Buddhist Center has decided to cancel all classes and events effective Friday, March 13th through Sunday, March 30th.

Please be assured, this action has not been taken because of any specific health risk, but is consistent with the recommendations regarding "social distancing" that health professionals have advocated.

Kadam Heather will be making recordings for each study program. We are in the process of investigating options for our General Program classes and will keep you apprised of our progress.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Mahasiddha Kadampa Buddhist Center

Wishing you continued good health.
