New Kadampa Tradition

New Kadampa Tradition

Akanishta KBC is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKTIKBU).

The New Kadampa Tradition is a Mahayana Buddhist tradition founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatsothat is derived from the Buddhist meditators and scholars Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa.

NKT-IKBU is an association of study and meditation centres dedicated to helping people everywhere find meaning and purpose in their lives, and to the developing of genuine inner peace and happiness.

Rapidly growing, our Kadampa community is an international family, offering support, inspiration and encouragement for this joyful and profound spiritual path at centres around the world.  Putting Buddha’s teachings into practice in the context of our family and work commitments, we discover they are unsurpassed methods to resolve daily difficulties and problems.
