The Vajrapani Kadampa Buddhist Centre provides an opportunity to learn what modern Buddhism is in the heart of Johannesburg.
Founded in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso: an accomplished meditation master, born in Tibet and credited for pioneering Modern Kadampa Buddhism; the centre offers online meditation classes, in person classes, chanted prayers as well as meditation for corporate functions, kid's class and a Buddhist Study Programme. Regular events include the Awakening Our Buddha Nature class on Sundays by Gen Mila. There are also Buddhist retreats and courses on offer such as the Zoom course by Dr Colinde Linde on overcoming anger and frustration.
Due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, all meditation, classes, courses and retreats are available online.
