Kadampa Meditation Center Texas is part of the NKT-IKBU, an international spiritual community dedicated to achieving peace throughout the world.
Visitors from all backgrounds come to find refuge from the challenges of busy, modern life and draw inspiration from spiritual teachings and friends, including western Buddhist monks and nuns.
You will find a warm, friendly community here, that strives to exemplify Buddhist practice in daily life. Our goal is to provide everyone, regardless of background, experience or belief, the opportunity to learn how to achieve inner peace and happiness.
Classes, Day Courses, Events, and Retreats
Many of our classes are drop-in meditation classes. No registration is required and everyone is welcome. These classes are perfect for beginners as well as those with more experience. They provide an introduction and on-going practice of meditation, mindfulness, and Buddhist teachings for daily life.
Throughout the year, we also offer Saturday and Weekend courses as well as retreats. When we reduce our distractions and focus more deeply on spiritual teachings and meditation, even for one day, we begin to see how cultivating a more peaceful state of mind is possible.
Our special events are a great way to meet other like-minded people and become connected to a spiritual community!
We also offer enrollment-based study programs for those wishing to go deeper into understanding and practicing Buddha's teachings. Open to all levels, these classes occur on a weekly basis and regular attendance is suggested.

Chanted prayers, often called pujas or sadhanas, are an important part of our practice. They enable us to prepare our mind for successful meditation by experiencing mental transformation that comes from Buddha's blessings. They also help us to purify our mind of negativity and gather positive energy that comes from reciting and focusing on the meaning of the prayers. These are open to all unless otherwise noted.
Our daily chanted meditation practice is Wishfulfilling Jewel. Other practices are done on a regular basis. Please feel free to drop-in at anytime to learn about these. You can also find more information at www.Kadampa.org.
