Kadampa Meditation Center New York

We’re getting a new building!

As those who have visited are well aware, KMC New York does not have the infrastructure to allow the Temple function at its full capacity. Because of this, we have embarked on building a new dining and accommodations facility. Completion of the new building is planned for Fall 2022.

What is Karma?

Karma means actions: the actions of our body, speech and mind. This subject is very meaningful. Throughout our life we have to experience various kinds of suffering and problems without choice.
