Learn about meditation and Modern Buddhism with a community of people who are all trying to improve the quality of their life, and our world, by improving the quality of their mind. Based on the books of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we present these teachings in an accessible manner that can easily be integrated into our modern lives.

Meditate in Dumfries and Galloway is a registered charity called Vajrasattva Buddhist Centre. We plan to open a meditation centre in Dumfries which will be run entirely by volunteers. The centre will provide a welcoming space in the town centre, with a peaceful meditation room, café and shop. We will be able to offer courses, events and retreats on meditation and Modern Buddhism across the whole of Dumfries and Galloway. We are a member of the New Kadampa Tradition(NKT) which is an International Union of Kadampa Buddhist Centres. There are currently over 1400 Centres worldwide.
