Kathok Centre offers traditional Buddhist meditation practices in accordance with the Kathok Nyingma Lineage as well as non-denominational lessons and practice on meditation to reduce stress and increase health and sense of mental, physical and spiritual well being. Here at Kathok Centre we follow the ancient teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha who lived 2500 years ago. The Centre is dedicted to creating the opportunity for everyone to utilize and integrate these timeless, humanitarian spiritual values into their daily lives. The highest Buddhist goal is to attain and maintain the perfect union of compassion and wisdom in order to benefit others. This is the path and our collective aspiration here at Kathok Centre.

The Centre also offers practices and companioning for those ill and passing and their families and loved ones.

 We are a registered non- profit society operated and maintained by a dedicated board of volunteers with all expenses supported entirely by donations. Your generosity also supports our resident and visiting Teachers, sponsors special projects and creates opportunities to host cross cultural events, like Meditation retreats, Silent Auctions, Dances and the Oceanside Light Tour, all with the intention of creating peace within and without. Latest research shows that one of the key ingredients of experiential happiness is a deep sense of community and with all of our projects at the temple and through out the oceanside area this is our goal!
