Venue & Accommodation


The Ontario Dharma Celebration will be held at Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada which arose from the compassionate intention of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso as part of the International Temples Project, a unique international fund dedicated to public benefit. The Temple is located downtown in Little Italy, and is the National Temple of the New Kadampa Tradition. An oasis of peace in the city, it is dedicated to the attainment of world peace by offering everyone the opportunity to develop lasting mental peace.





There are limited on-site accommodations available at KMC Canada that may be booked online for the full Celebration only. Partial Celebration bookings cannot be accepted. Please check the Celebration Fees page for pricing and options.
