Meditation classes & Modern Buddhism in Nelson, New Zealand ~ Everyone Welcome!

Kadampa Buddhism brings the teachings of Buddha into the modern world and shows how anyone, Buddhist or not, can benefit from the practices Buddha taught. People from all walks of life attend the classes and although many are not Buddhists they testify to the power of meditation and mindfulness to improve the quality of their life both at home and at work.

Why Should We Meditate?

Meditation is a mind that concentrates on a virtuous object, and is a mental action that is the main cause of mental peace. It is a way of calming the mind, making us more peaceful, balanced and focused in our daily lives. Ultimately, it enables us to awaken our spiritual potential and find lasting joy and contentment.
