About Us


Our Purpose

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.

US Kadampa Festival
Starts Friday, June 19, 8:00pm
$150 for the entire 5-days of festival
Everyone welcome!
We have been experiencing and witnessing a lot of suffering throughout our world - including the sufferings of injustice, oppression, grief, sickness and dying. There is now increased economic fear, as well as social and political unrest. On an individual level, addictions, compulsions, and mental illness are all on the rise. What are we to do in such challenging times?

Buddha's teachings reveal how every one of us has the power to change our world into one of true happiness, equality, freedom and breathtaking beauty. It starts with connecting to our own peaceful states of mind, our Buddha nature, and through this connecting to the inner experience of enlightened beings.

In just under two weeks, there will be a special opportunity to connect with Buddha Maitreya, the enlightened embodiment of all Buddhas' loving kindness. By directly connecting with Maitreya's mind, we will have great power to develop our own minds of love and compassion, which are the solution to all our world's problems.

“Loving kindness is the very essence of Kadam Dharma and a precious method to attain enlightenment. We will be born as Buddha through loving kindness for all living beings. In reality loving kindness gives you everything.”
- Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Everyone is welcome!
