Modern Buddhism in Phoenix
Kadampa Mediation Center Phoenix (formerly known as Clear Light Buddhist Center) is open and equally available to everyone regardless of gender, race, color, ethnic background, national origin, religion , or sexual orientation. Our Center offers instruction in meditation and Buddhist spiritual practice through weekly meditation classes, retreats, workshops, and special events. KMC Phoenix is located in Phoenix, Arizona, and offers classes in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area including Tempe, Mesa, Surprise, Sun City, and Fountain Hills. In addition to our Phoenix Center, there is our sister center in Tucson, Kadampa Meditation Center Arizona (KMC Arizona).
Classes at our Phoenix center take place in a beautiful meditation room and are suitable for all individuals at all levels of interest. Our Center offers a peaceful sanctuary to all those who seek a simple refuge from the stress and busyness of modern life.
KMC Phoenix was founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in 2001 and is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition ~ International Kadampa Buddhist Union (KMC-IKBU), a global network of over one thousand Centers and groups around the world.
