International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon is part of an international spiritual community dedicated to achieving world peace through following the Buddhist path. Our community consists of residents – people who live on site, including ordained monks and nuns – and others who live in the local area.


You will find a warm, friendly community here, whose members strive to exemplify Buddhist practice through public service. This includes their providing to everyone, regardless of background, experience, or belief, the opportunity to learn how to achieve inner peace and happiness through meditation.

“Whenever anyone, Buddhist or not, sees a Temple or an image of Buddha, they receive blessings.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
