Becoming a resident

Residing at Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada is a wonderful way to learn how to apply Buddha’s teachings to our daily life.

Lay and ordained residents live together as a harmonious community in two houses near to the Temple. Residents study the teachings of Kadam Dharma under the guidance of the Resident Teacher within the framework of the Study Programs, engage in meaningful volunteer work in a variety of areas, and use the teachings to the best of our ability in service to others.

KMC Canada offers residence to interested people after an interview and application process, on a space-available basis. Applicants must be enrolled in Foundation Program or Teacher Training Program, or attending the General Program on a weekly basis, and must have a strong wish to participate in the daily activities of the Temple such as group pujas and community meals.

All residents are responsible to cover the expense of rent, meals, study program and other fees and to maintain the conditions of residency meant to ensure harmony within the community.
