We provide a conducive environment for people to contact, study and deepen their understanding of the Buddhist path.

The Centre provides a peaceful harmonious environment that can help many people to overcome suffering and achieve wisdom and happiness in their lives.

Chandrakirti Meditation Centre was founded and named in 1999 by our Spiritual Director Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche, who is widely recognised as one of the original great teachers who introduced Buddhism to the west. During a visit to the Chandrakirti Centre in May 2002, His Holiness the Dalai Lama consecrated the longlife stupa and named the new meditation temple "Nalanda Hall".
