Bringing Buddism To The Modern World

Venerable Geshe Kelsang is a renowned contemporary meditation master and holder of the Ganden Oral Lineage of Mahamudra who has pioneered the introduction of modern Kadampa Buddhism into contemporary society.

He is highly regarded as a fully accomplished scholar and practitioner of Kadampa Buddhism who over the last forty years has given thousands of teachings, composed twenty-three widely acclaimed books on Buddhism and meditation, established over a thousand meditation centres, trained hundreds of qualified teachers and developed practical study and meditation programmes to suit the needs of the modern world.

It is Venerable Geshe-la’s clear belief that people of these times can develop pure compassion and wisdom, make authentic spiritual progress, liberate themselves from suffering and eventually achieve full enlightenment.

Motivated by this belief and his immense compassion he has worked tirelessly to provide all the necessary conditions to make this possible in this and future generations.

“My dedication is to benefit the people of this modern world through spreading Kadam Dharma.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
