Welcome to Kathok Meditation Centre, Centre of Clear Light

Kathok Centre is Tibetan Buddhist Centre open to the entire community including all faiths are welcome to come and put into practice creating peace within ourselves so we may be of greater benefit to ourselves and all those around us.

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 physical and spiritual well being.

The Centre also offers practice and support 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 the annual Dinner & Dance 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!
