Dharmavajra Kadampa Buddhist Centre

Everybody welcome! Croeso i bawb!

Founded by the modern-day meditation master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in 1993, Dharmavajra Kadampa Buddhist Centre exists to help people discover their own experience of inner peace through meditation and putting Buddha’s teachings into practice.

Buddhism has a timeless and universal relevance, and can be practised by anyone in any culture, regardless of race, gender or age. Through training in meditation and other Buddhist practices we can improve the quality of our lives by developing inner peace, compassion and wisdom.

The Centre will be celebrating New Year's Eve with a meditation, buffet and prayers, and then in 2015 will be running additional Wednesday evening classes, starting on 7 January plus a week of guided retreat. The highlight of spring will be the Welsh Dharma Celebration in Llandudno- an opportunity for the Kadampa Buddhist community throughout Wales to come together to enjoy teachings, meditation and each other's company.

The remaining drop-in meditation classes in Swansea- Monday evenings, Thursday evenings and Family (Sunday afternoons), plus local classes in Cardiff, Newport, Bridgend and Carmarthen will begin from Monday 2nd February. There are also a variety of Day Courses and Meditation Workshops throughout the spring. You can stay in touch with the Centre with the monthly e-newsletter, on the Facebook page.


About Dharmavajra Kadampa Buddhist Centre

About Meditation

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
