Kadampa Meditation Center LA
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.
KMC Los Angeles 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.
Getting to the Center
Getting to the Center is simple. We're on the corner of Franklin Ave and Kenmore in the neighborhood of Los Feliz. Street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhoods, usually within a block or two of the Center's front door.
Everyone is welcome
Welcome to the Community
Community is important to us. The way of being at the Center exemplifies how Kadampa Buddhist practices and modern life go hand in hand. We integrate the teachings we receive into the activities and dialogue that make up our Center life. It feels simple, harmonious and easy to enjoy your inner and outer environment.
Our Founder and Spiritual Teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso often says, "everyone welcome!" Yes, everyone is welcome to join the Center, its classes, events and practices regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender and so on. We know that everyone benefits from Buddha's teachings and we're delighted to have our doors open to help make that happen.
Did you know that all our classes and events are run by a volunteer team of 60+?! Check out the video below:
