Our Founder:Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

In recent years, Kadampa Buddhism has been promoted widely throughout the world by the contemporary Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Since coming to the West in 1977, he has transmitted all the essential teachings and practices of Modern Kadampa Buddhism and provided training and support for hundreds of modern Kadampa Teachers. By founding the New Kadampa Tradition, the International Kadampa Buddhist Union in 1991, Geshe Kelsang has created a truly global infrastructure to preserve and promote Kadampa Buddhism for many generations to come.

It is through his kindness that we are able to access the precious teachings of Kadampa Buddhism and have the opportunity to attain the ultimate goal of human life, the supreme permanent mental peace of enlightenment, and be able to lead all living beings to the same state.
