Meditation and Buddhism in Queens

Bodha Gaya Meditation Centerqueens meditation buddhism

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.

Hello everyone,
As you may know, our center has been looking for a new space to hold our meditation classes. The building we are in has been sold to create residential space.

June 26th, will be our last Sunday morning class. We will be holding our Wednesday evening classes on June 22nd and the last evening class will be held on June 29.

We have enjoyed your friendship and dedication over these past nine years and we are looking forward to spending many more meaningful years together when we find a new home for Bodh Gaya center.

If anyone has knowledge of a space to rent in the area of the center, you can email me at

Much love,
