77-79 King St as KMC Aberdeen
Our meditation centre is a newly renovated traditional granite building with considerable character, in the heart of the city.
This ordinary commercial space has been transformed into a sacred space for meditation and modern Kadampa Buddhism, giving the people living and working in and around Aberdeen a direct and easily accessed connection with meditation in the heart of the city.
We remodelling the building to create a beautiful meditation room, with modern Buddha statues to delight and inspire, (produced at the art studio at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre in Cumbria); and a fully accessible ground floor shop, reception, social area, cafe area and video link.
The centre is run by a joyful team of full time and part time volunteers.
All contributions of time, energy, money, prayers and good wishes have been and continue to be deeply appreciated.
In general on Saturdays we have community work days that anyone can join in with to clean and care for the centre, and it is also possible to come in most afternoons to volunteer.
