Kilnwick Percy HallMadhyamaka KMC was the first centre founded by renowned Buddhist Teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and has been located at Kilnwick Percy Hall since 1986.

Now an internationally-renowned Kadampa Meditation Centre, thousands of people attend courses, meditation classes and events throughout the year, as well as visit the gift shop, Bed and Breakfast, World Peace Cafe and historic building and grounds.

With nearly 50 acres of grounds, including a beautiful lake, walled gardens, woodlands and parkland, it’s an ideal place to come for a stroll or a picnic. There are regular guided history tours of the building and grounds.

International Temples ProjectVenerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of NKT, has dedicated his life to helping the people of this world find true happiness by developing inner peace, or peace of mind, through meditation and other practices.
He has designed an international education programme that provides everyone regardless of nationality, age or gender with the opportunity to learn simple techniques for developing the capacity of their mind and eventually attaining the permanent inner peace of enlightenment. To date, this programme has been implemented in over forty countries.
Geshe Kelsang’s compassionate intention is embodied in the International Temples Project (ITP), a unique international fund dedicated to public benefit. The ITP fosters the international development of a wide range of contemporary Buddhist institutions. These presently include Temples for World Peace, Kadampa Meditation Centres (KMCs), International Retreat Centres (IRCs), Kadampa Buddhist Centres (KBCs), World Peace Cafés, the International Schools Project, and Tharpa Publications. All these institutions provide a public service that exemplifies the Buddhist faith.
All International and National Festivals as well as Dharma Celebrations are hosted by KMCs and KBCs and many are held in the Temples for World Peace. The proceeds from all these courses are dedicated to public benefit through the ITP, so simply by attending them you are helping to bring peace into the hearts of this and future generations.
