Who we are
Kadampa Meditation Center New Mexico is located in Albuquerque and is the main Center for Kadampa Buddhism in New Mexico. Everyone is welcome to find refuge from the challenges of busy modern life, receive clear, practical advice from Buddha’s teachings, and gain inspiration from spiritual friends including Buddhist monks and nuns. We invite you to relax, reflect and rejuvenate at this spiritual oasis in the heart of the city.
KMC New Mexico offers a full program of Buddhist meditation classes, in-depth study programs and retreats to help increase our compassion, love and wisdom. The methods and practices are suitable for every level of interest. They enable us to find more peace of mind and the happiness and meaning that we long for in our lives.
Our bookstore features the books of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Through his kindness Western readers now have access to Buddha's teachings at whatever level they wish to practice. Though these books are based on ancient texts of great Buddhist Teachers, they are clear and accessible to modern readers and have been translated into numerous languages.
In addition, our bookstore carries prayer booklets (sadhanas), CDs, posters, statues, prayer beads, postcards, and other beautiful items.
