Because our Sangha is so new, there are few  NKT Followers joining us I believe. We would love to have you be apart of our board, as we are interested in learning more about the NKT from an actual follower. Let me know if you need help with anything.  :anjali:

No, there's a couple of NKT members here... just give them time to log in and reply to your request.

Hi.  Welcome. :)

I studied withe the NKT for some years and now attend classes with a local Gelugpa Geshe for a more 'first hand' experience.

You will find a New Kadampa section of this forum here:

Although I'm sure I'm pretty much a newbie compared to most of you good folk, and although I do like to look at any of the traditions, I'm pretty much a New Kadampa follower, albeit a pretty inexperienced one, I've been reading about and studying Buddhism (in general, not a specific school for the most part) on my own for around three and a half years but only really decided I had become fully Buddhist, it grew in a kind of organic way, about 4 months ago.

My local Temple / centre is the Manjushri Kadampa International Meditation Centre & Temple for World Peace (http://nkt-kmc-manjushri.org/) in Cumbria and my local Sangha and meditation group / class are all New Kadampa, all belonging to the Manjushri of course, so now I have contact with a flesh and blood sangha and I'm being more specific in my reading and learning its mainly of the New Kadampa Tradition.

This page on my humble little (and fairly new) blog gives a brief idea about how I came to Buddhism  https://thehappysnappershideout.wordpress.com/buddhism-and-me/     ;D

Wow.  Good karma from a previous life, or have you much positive karma form this one?

You are soooo lucky to have Manju as your local centre. Most of us only get an annual visit.

I used to be wholly NKT and still have GKG as my Root Guru, but now have a Lharampa Geshe teaching close to my home, so I too must have created good karma somewhere! ;)

Wow! that's so fascinating! Buddhists are all along the same path of Manjushri, the is the embodiement of all the Buddha' wisdom. The word manju means “charming, beautiful, pleasing” and Shri means “glory, brilliance”.
May all share the wisdom joys and peace of Manjushri together. :namaste:
Love is felt everywhere like magic in the air; Unity can only be manifested by the binary. Unity itself and the idea of unity are already dual.
