Our Teachers


When in 1977, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso accepted an invitation to come to the West and teach, a new era dawned for Kadampa Buddhism in this world.

With the blessings of his Spiritual Guide, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Geshe Kelsang took the essential meaning of Kadam Dharma and presented it in a way that could be easily understood and practiced by people not just in the West, but throughout the world.

This precious Dharma taught at first by Buddha, introduced into Tibet by the great Indian Teacher Atisha, and promoted by the great Tibetan Master, Je Tsongkhapa was now available to people of all countries.

Through the actions of Geshe Kelsang Kadampa Buddhism has now become a truly global religion.

Geshe Kelsang has established an extensive Teacher Training Program through which he has trained hundreds of qualified Meditation Teachers in many countries around the world.

He has also founded an international organization to create a global infrastructure to support the growth and development of Kadampa Buddhism in future generations.
