Our Community

Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre is a registered charity that relies solely on the kindness of volunteers in the community to run. If you would like to get involved, please consider volunteering at AKBC by coming to Centre Cherishing,  volunteering to help the centre on a weekly basis, or making a donation.

Dear Friends,

Thanks to the generosity of our members, volunteers, and benefactors, Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre has grown into its new space in Guelph this year, providing a special place for people to meet and develop inner peace in their minds. Furthermore, this year we have been able to extend our classes in London by starting a new Foundation Program, as well as offering new classes in Guelph and other locations. This coming year we hope to further advance our education program to bring more classes to people seeking refuge in their modern busy lives.

With your support and through our work, we will continue to establish inner peace in our own minds, and thereby begin to establish peace throughout the world.

You can read about our mission to advance world peace here.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

Avalokiteshvara Centre is wholly run by volunteers, so any help that you can give is appreciated.

  • Offer your skills and artistry
  • Make prayers and dedications
