Welcome to Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center

Living a stress-free and meaningful life has never been closer to your fingertips. Meditation is a method to acquaint our mind with causes of happiness. You do not have to be a Buddhist or a member of the center to attend classes.  Everyone is welcome.

Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center is a non-profit organization based in Philadelphia, PA and is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union. This tradition is an international Mahayana Buddhist organization founded by the Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The Center offers the study and meditation programs of Kadampa Buddhism, under the guidance of our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Tenzin.

Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center, holding classes throughout Philadelphia, was founded on the knowledge that it is possible for everyone to cultivate positive states of mind that will lead to calmness and inner peace. We strive to provide a conducive environment for people to deepen their understanding and experience of meditation practice and Buddhist studies. Meditation is the heart of Buddhist practice. Through meditation, we can gain deep insight into how to be happy and deal with life’s challenges successfully.

Through consistent meditation practice, we can complete all the stages of the path to enlightenment and attain indestructible inner peace. This center offers many ways to integrate our spiritual understanding into our daily life.
