Located in the heart of the city on Guildhall Lane, just behind the Cathedral, Leicester Meditation Centre is one of over 1200 Kadampa Centres and branches in 40 countries around the world where people can study and practice teachings of Buddha. The centre is part of The New Kadampa Tradition-International Kadampa Buddhist Union founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

The Centre has two beautiful meditation rooms and provides two levels of study and meditation classes. The main meditation room is free to use Monday-Saturday 10.30am - 4pm unless the Lunchtime Meditation class is on. (12.30 - 1pm). The Meditation rooms are wheelchair accessible and seating is either on chairs or cushions plus no special clothing is required.

The purpose of the Centre is to benefit people by sharing how, through training in meditation, we can learn to gradually solve our problems, overcome stress and anxiety and develop inner peace and lasting happiness.

There are a range of meditation classes on offer, both during the week and weekends suitable for all levels of experience. The classes and courses offer something for everyone; from complete beginners to those with previous experience of meditation. Each course consists of guided meditations and practical teachings on Buddha's helpful advice for solving our problems and finding lasting happiness.
