Find Happiness from Within
Drop-in Meditation Classes
Day & Evening Classes Tuesdays to Fridays
Learn practical methods on how you can take charge of your well being through meditation and mindfulness. Each and every one of us has the capacity to tap into an endless supply of inner peace and happiness.
“When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us…” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
In these classes we will discover how we can transform our own lives and the lives of others through learning how to develop and maintain a peaceful mind. Each class includes a relaxing breathing meditation, a teaching, and contemplative meditation
Most of the classes are taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin, the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Kadampa Meditation Centre (which is in Keighley), and the Principal Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre. He is a Buddhist monk with over 24 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
The Wednesday 11 – 12 class at Keighley and the Thursday 11-12 class at Keighley are taught by Kelsang Dra-ma, a student of the Teacher Training Programme at Buddha Land Kadampa Meditation Centre, Keighley.
The Tuesday 12noon – 1pm class at Otley is taught by Paul Cavanaugh, a student of the Foundation Programme at Buddha Land Kadampa Meditation Centre, Keighley.
