Meditate in Eugene is a branch of the Mahasiddha Kadampa Buddhist Center in Portland. We offer meditation classes for people interested in improving themselves through meditation. The class consists of teachings, guided meditations and short prayers. In the class we will learn meditations Buddha taught over 2500 years ago, designed to help us develop deep inner peace and happiness. By developing our inner peace and sharing it with others, our world will gradually become more peaceful. In this way, we will accomplish world peace.
“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be achieved unless we first establish peace within our own minds.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
The New Kadampa Tradition is a western Buddhist tradition brought from Tibet by meditation master Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
