Meditation and Buddhism in Portland


Drop-in Classes

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.

Out of emptiness a Temple appears

It is less than a year since International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon opened its doors to the public and began an ever expanding programme of retreats and courses with the Resident Teacher Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, the Deputy Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, as well as many visiting Kadampa Teachers.

New Temple
IKRC Grand Canyon will be the site of a Kadampa Temple for World Peace based on the new five-tier design, which is scheduled to open in fall 2019. In March this year a groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of the construction of the Temple. Since then remarkable progress has been made, as you can see from these extraordinary photos.

International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon is located in Williams, Arizona, less than an hour from the Grand Canyon. It is surrounded by acres and acres of beautiful ponderosa pine forest. Everyone is welcome to experience this beautiful retreat environment.

For more great photos and information on the center and how to be part of this auspicious development visit kadampa.org/2018/09/out-of-emptiness-a-temple-appears
