About us


Joyful Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre was established in 1996 under the direction of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Our Centre has a beautiful meditation room, a small bookstore and giftshop and a quiet reading room. Joyful Land is a non-profit organization established to provide the people of the Ottawa area with the opportunity to learn about and practice Buddha’s teachings and to learn concrete solutions to solve daily problems. Joyful Land has arisen from the compassionate intention and vision of Venerable “Geshe-la” and is dedicated to the happiness and freedom from suffering of every living being.

Our spiritual programs provide practical methods for improving the quality and meaning of life through developing the capacity of our minds. The centre welcomes people from all faiths as well as those who do not subscribe to any faith. You do not have to be Buddhist to take part in the programs or to benefit from them.
