Bodh Gaya Center is a Kadampa Buddhist meditation center in the heart of Bayside, New York. The center provides meditation classes and teachings in the Queens area.

Taught by qualified Western teachers, the classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced meditation practioners, and emphasize how to meditate and practice in our NY urban environment.

Meditation Classes and Workshops

Meditation is a simple yet profound method to improve the quality of our lives. Through following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to let go of the causes of our pain and dissatisfaction and gain the inner peace and clarity we seek.

We offer a wide range of classes from basic introductions to Buddhist meditation, applying Buddha’s teachings to daily life issues such as anger and improving relationships, to comprehensive study programs. Everyone is welcome.
