Kadampa Buddhist Meditation Centres within Glasgow and Edinburgh provide people across Scotland the opportunity to learn how to meditate and to develop real inner peace. As non for profit organisations they rely on volunteer support and funding to survive

Hello all, my name is Jon.  Yes thats me the over optermistic intrepid wanderer pictured. I am known for taking on a challenge or two for good causes and this one is no exception.  On Friday 23rd September 2016 I will set off on a 100km walk from Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Edinburgh.  Using the Union Canal path as my route, I will walk unaided to Vajrayana Kadampa Buddhist Centre and then finally arrive at Kadampa Meditation Centre Glasgow.  The walk will be completed over 2 to 3 days.  

Reasons for embarking on this ardous trek can be summed up in two words - meditation works!  I have been practising meditation for a decade and in that time have witnessed monumental shifts in my mind, in my life and how it is possible to relate in an open, loving and positive way to everyone in this world with which we share.  I see clearly and hear about similar transformative experiences among many friends who also train in meditation.  In fact, I have yet to meet somone who has not benefited in some way from the practice of meditation.  None of these developments however would have been possible without the availabilty and benefit of Meditation Centres and their range of classes and branches across the country.  Learning to meditate for the first time is not always an easy venture however attending taster and beginner group meditation classes can, in my expereience, be an excellent and long enriching choice for anyone wishing to devleop real inner peace and essentially become a better human being in this world.  These Centres are supported entirely by volunteers and kind benefactors.  They are often in need of regular financial support not only to maintain their exisiting meditation programmes but also to extend these across further areas of the country and thereby offering more and more people the opportunity to lead deeply happy and meaningful lives.    

Please donate what ever you can, no matter how small to this great cause in the hope that one day there will be real and lasting world peace, thank you!
