See what Kadampa Meditation Center San Francisco has on offer to help you escape busy life and more importantly unhappy states of mind. Every year the New Kadampa Tradition organizes a world wide program of special courses on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living.
The Foundation Program (FP) is for anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding and experience of Buddhism through systematic study. FP is a practical method to improve our good heart, wisdom and inner peace. The program is based on a systematic study of six Kadampa Buddhist texts written by the Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. How to Understand the Mind, the latest book by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, offers us deep insight into our mind, and shows how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives. Our courses combine practical exercises with advice and inspiration, enabling you to access your own inner storehouse of peace and joy.

Whether you live in San Diego or are just visiting, you can’t beat this place when it comes to finding a great place to run and meditate at the same time. We’re all familiar with the practice of seeking happiness through acquisition of material possessions or through attainment of success in the “outer” world.
Finding time to meditate at work can be a powerful boon to both your inner peace and outer satisfaction during the day. Just as music has a powerful sway over our emotions and outer energy, it also has the capacity to inspire our deep meditations.
There is only one good way to get better at meditation and to receive more benefits and that is regular as well as punctual practice. In addition to a routine of daily meditation on your own, you will likely find that regular participation in a group meditation will help you considerably in achieving your spiritual goals. When – The best time to meditate during the day is first thing in the morning, just after you get up. Typically we aspire to increase our capacity to meditate as we begin to appreciate its benefits. When we sit down to a blank canvas, a blank piece of paper or a silent instrument and search for inspiration to create something new to offer to the world, where does that inspiration come from?
Stress inhibits our natural abilities to live our daily lives in a healthy, clear and peaceful manner.
Our classes are given by instructors from all walks of life, some of whom have been studying meditation of Sri Chinmoy for over 30 years. Sujantra owns the Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga Studio and has authored five books on eastern philosophy, success motivation and meditation. As well as our native San Diegoans, we frequently invite instructors from all around the world to give talks.
As well as free meditation classes, our members run several enterprises that bring the principles of meditation into daily life, and are continually organising projects to serve the public, and to help each human being find the best within themselves. Jyoti-Bihanga is situated on Adams Avenue, and dedicated to providing delicious food in a tranquil atmosphere.
