A message from Resident Teacher, Kelsang Chondzin

Important Changes to classes at Kalpa Bhadra Kadampa Buddhist Center starting September 1st.

Dear KBKBC Harrisburg Community,

We have an important change happening at KBKBC Harrisburg!  As with other NKT Centers around the world, we are transitioning back to in-person classes only, beginning September 1st (see exceptions below).

The following classes will be offered starting in September:

  • General Program: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. In-Person classes only. See below the topics for the September Series.
  • Foundation Program: Mondays 4:30-6:30pm. In-Person, with a correspondence option of livestream/recordings based on need. Registration is required to attend this Program.
  • Teacher Training Program: Sundays 1:30pm-4:00pm. In-Person, with a correspondence option of recordings based on need. Registration is required to attend this Program.

Having a spiritual community is essential in Buddhist practice. Our like-minded spiritual friends help us strengthen our practice and grow on the spiritual path. We look forward to seeing you soon here at KBKBC Harrisburg.

With love and prayers,

Introducing a New Foundation Program Class

Eight Steps to Happiness with Resident Teacher, Kelsang Chondzin

This Foundation Class is for people who need to livestream, or find Joyful Path too hard.  8 Steps is for everybody!

A new introductory level Foundation Program class will be held Wednesdays from 6:00pm-7:30 pm, Starting Wednesday, Sept. 7.
This class will study Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - a wonderful book on how to live life with love.  Systematic study of one book has great benefits.  This class is shorter than usual and has shorter prayers. It ends in time to get the kids to bed.
Attend in person or online live streamed.
This is a class with commitments. Call 717-412-1524 for details.
Hope to see you there! Kelsang Chondzin, Resident Teacher


Kadampa Festivals 2022

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition organizes three International Festivals of modern Kadampa Buddhism taught by senior Teachers.  Visit the Kadampa Festivals site for more information.




The Precious Conch shell symbolizes the Dharma Jewel, encouraging us to listen to precious Dharma teachings and contemplate and meditate on their meaning.


The Precious Fish symbolizes peace and harmony, indicating that having come under the umbrella of Buddhism we should always maintain harmony and joy.


The Precious Dharma Wheel encourages us to benefit others by turning the Wheel of Dharma, that is, by giving Dharma teachings. This is our final goal.
