Kadampa Meditation Center LA is a modern Buddhist temple and Meditation Center nestled in the heart of Los Feliz. We offer daily classes on inner peace, modern Kadampa Buddhism and meditation.
KMC LA is located in a beautiful, dynamic neighborhood, walking distance from cafes and coffee shops, hiking distance from Griffith Park Observatory, and a short drive to iconic beaches, scenic hikes and the famed Hollywood Boulevard.
Every day, we offer classes, events and guided meditations that fit your needs and inclinations.
The main purpose is to help you experience peace of mind, which is a result of meditation.
Originally a church built in 1937, KMC Los Angeles offers prime visibility on a busy east-west thoroughfare in a popular, trendy section of LA. The Meditation Hall features 25-foot high, vaulted, original wood ceilings, stained glass and seating for 250 people, including a balcony area. There is a small house on the property with three residents, and the second floor of the Temple, behind the balcony, is currently being renovated to accommodate four more residents.
When we meditate, the turbulence of our usual distracting thoughts subside and our mind becomes still. We can then experience a deep happiness and contentment that naturally arises from within.
Our stance on community is that it matters. We are committed to being a community asset by offering classes and by providing a safe and considerate space for all.
