Madhyamaka KMC was founded by renowned Buddhist Teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and has been located at Kilnwick Percy Hall since 1986.

Now an internationally-renowned Kadampa Meditation Centre, thousands of people attend courses, meditation classes and events throughout the year, as well as visit the gift shop, Bed and Breakfast, World Peace Cafe and historic building and grounds.
