Kyabje Lama Zopa RinpocheWelcome to Chandrakirti Meditation Centre

Chandrakirti Meditation Centre is a Tibetan Buddhist centre situated in the rolling hills of the Nelson countryside. Affiliated with FPMT Inc. our goal is to promote the wisdom, compassion and loving-kindness that is the very heart of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and practice. With this in mind we provide a conducive environment for people to contact, study and deepen their understanding of the Buddhist path.

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".

 Our Mission

Chandrakirti Meditation Centre is an affiliate of the FPMT and our mission is to support and fulfill the FPMT's mission statement which is:
The FPMT is an organization devoted to preserving and spreading Mahayana Buddhism worldwide by creating opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient beings.
We provide integrated education through which people's minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of others, inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility and service. We are committed to creating harmonious environments and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion.
Our organization is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught to us by our founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and our spiritual director, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.
