The New Kadampa Tradition
The New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT–IKBU) is an international association of study and meditation centers that follow the pure tradition of Mahayana Buddhism derived from the Buddhist meditators and scholars Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa and introduced into the West by the Buddhist Teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Kadampa Buddhism is a Mahayana Buddhist school founded by the great Indian Buddhist Master Atisha (AD 982-1054). His followers, known as Kadampas, regard Buddha’s teachings as personal instructions and put them into practice by following Atisha’s instructions of Lamrim (Stages of the Path). Je Tsongkhapa and his followers, who were known as the ‘New Kadampas’, later promoted the Kadampa tradition widely in Tibet.
