In all our activities we follow the spiritual guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama who first conceived of CKSL and instructed our spiritual director, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, to establish it.


Rinpoche is a highly respected guru in this tradition who has been tirelessly teaching thousands of people all over the world for the past thirty years. He is also the spiritual director of the Foundation for the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), which has a network of over 160 centres and related charitable projects in more than 30 countries worldwide.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama says of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, "Rinpoche is someone who follows my guidance sincerely and very expansively - whatever I instruct, Zopa Rinpoche has the capability to accomplish it. He works with such determination and great sincerity in the service of Buddha's teachings and sentient beings".

The range of the teachers at CKSL include highly realized masters, learned scholars and senior monks who have trained at Sera Je monastery in Bylakuppe, one of the world's premiere institutions for the advanced Buddhist study. Inspired to pass on the teachings they themselves have received; our teachers explain the Buddha's message based on their own practical experience of meditation and study.
