What is Modern Buddhism?

Learn what Modern Buddhism is in the heart of Johannesburg.

Buddha’s most profound insight into the nature of the mind remains as revolutionary in our modern world as it was 2500 years ago: the mind is the source of all happiness and suffering. All of it.

At the VKBC, this is what we learn – in a very practical way. So that through meditation, we can cultivate authentic happiness, and actualize our greatest potential, and help others do the same.

…and we do it all right here in Johannesburg, thanks to the extraordinary teachings of our founder, Buddhist meditation master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Everyone is welcome!
