Welcome to

Kadampa Meditation Center Austin

Modern Buddhism in Central Texas

Buddha’s most profound insight into the nature of the mind remains as revolutionary in our modern world as it was 2500 years ago: the mind is the source of all happiness and suffering. All of it.

At KMC Austin, this is what we learn—in a very practical way. So that through meditation, we can cultivate authentic happiness, actualize our greatest potential, and help others do the same.

Meditation Classes

A weekly class consists of a teaching and meditation. Take home some good advice and apply it to your day.

Classes are happening several times during the week.
