Kadampa Meditation Centre Ottawa is participating in both days of Doors Open Ottawa this year!

Guests can participate in different activities each of these days without the need to pre-register. Just drop in! 

  • Our Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Thekchen will give an introduction to our Tradition each day at 12:30pm.

  • Our students will lead free guided meditations from 11am to 3pm, each hour on the hour.

  • We'll give tours explaining the symbolism of the statues on our shrine each day  at 11:30am and 1:30 pm.

In addition to the planned activities, guests may freely self-tour throughout our centre, enjoy complimentary light refreshments, relax in our comfy sitting area & bookshop, and chat with our volunteers. 

We look forward to seeing you - everybody is welcome!

As conscientious Dharma practitioners, we should observe our own shortcomings instead of being preoccupied with those of other people.
