About Menlha Kadampa Buddhist Center

MODERN BUDDHISM & MEDITATION FOR EVERYONE.

Menlha Kadampa Buddhist Center is a 501(c)3 volunteer-led charitable organization, and one of more than 1,200 Kadampa centers and branches now established throughout the world. We are located in the quaint city of Lambertville, NJ. We have reopened our physical space and all of our drop-in classes & events are offered in-person, as well as some of our chanted prayers. We look forward to welcoming everyone to our new space!

The Indian Buddhist master, Venerable Atisha, was responsible for reintroducing the entirety of Buddhism into Tibet in the 11th century. Three hundred years later, the great Buddhist yogi and scholar, Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), appeared in Tibet and widely promoted Atisha’s Lamrim instructions for the people of that time. It was a golden age in Tibet in which thousands of Tibetans were inspired by Je Tsongkhapa's teachings and immaculate example. His followers became known as the "New Kadampas" and to this day Kadampa Buddhists throughout the world study his teachings and strive to put them into practice.

After arriving in the West in 1977, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche began working to establish a modern presentation of the Kadampa lineage in the West. This presentation is Modern Kadampa Buddhism. The teachings of this tradition retain all of the essential meanings and insights of Buddha's original teachings and are presented in a way that is practical and suitable for modern people.
