Ratnasmbhava Kadampa Buddhist Centre is located in Oakwood, about a 15 minute drive from the city centre and easily accessible by public transport. It is part of a large international network of Kadampa Buddhist centres, established by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

The purpose of the centre is to provide a source of peace and harmony for people in Leeds and beyond by giving access to reliable methods for developing inner peace. The centre is open to everybody, regardless of belief or background.

We offer meditation classes and courses for beginners, intermediate students and those that wish to study in greater depth.

The community is made up of a wide variety of different people of all ages – some are ordained, but most are lay, some have families and most have full time jobs. What they all share is a wish to develop the qualities of mind which make them more peaceful and of greater benefit to others and the desire to help others to do the same.
