We all want to be happy, even during sleep. How can we do this? We can do this through training in meditation. Meditation makes our mind peaceful, and when our mind is peaceful we are happy all the time, even if our external conditions are poor. On the other hand, when our mind is not peaceful we are not happy, even if our external conditions are excellent. Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible — everyone needs meditation.

The Power of Meditation

  • Learn to meditate – we offer meditation programs with highly qualified teachers to guide you along the path

  • Help others – develop the wish to love and cherish all living beings equally

  • Be happy – realize the true nature of all phenomena with a light and happy mind

Participate at any level and enjoy more inner peace, clarity and a good heart. From simple meditation techniques to reduce stress and anxiety through in-depth study programs, practice proven methods to solve the problems of daily life and find true, lasting happiness.


The New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) is an international association of Mahayana Buddhist study and meditation centers founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in 1991 to offer the practical wisdom of Kadampa Buddhism to the people of our modern world.

Through Geshe Kelsang’s tireless activities and kindness, there are now over 1100 centers and groups offering Buddha’s wisdom advice to people in 40 countries across the world.

The NKT-IKBU follows the pure tradition of Mahayana Buddhism handed down in an unbroken lineage from Buddha Shakyamuni through the ancient Kadampa teachers Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa and introduced into the West by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

​The purpose of the NKT-IKBU is to increase the Buddhist faith throughout the world. It is an entirely independent Buddhist tradition that has no political affiliations.
