By practicing Kadampa buddhist meditation...

We can solve our daily problems of stress, anxiety, anger, uncontrolled desire, confusion, jealousy, and so on, and find deep and lasting inner peace.

We can nurture our spiritual potential  by increasing our loving kindness and wisdom, and eventually attain full enlightenment!

And, by integrating these practical methods into our daily lives, we will not only enrich our own lives, but the lives of our families, communities, and world.

Everybody Welcome
