Dharmachakra Buddhist Center is a Buddhist meditation center in northern New Jersey. We offer instruction in meditation and Buddhist spiritual practice through meditation classes, meditation retreats and special meditation events. Meditation is for everyone, from those who seek relaxation to those who wish to follow the Buddhist spiritual path. We are a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU).
Dharmachakra Buddhist Center was established in 2005 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Founder of the NKT-IKBU. It is dedicated to the happiness and freedom from suffering of every living being.
We are located in the Millburn Mall, at 2933 Vauxhall Rd., Vauxhall NJ. Our center is near the townships of Millburn, Maplewood and Union, and conveniently accessible to I-78 and the Garden State Parkway. There is plenty of well-lit parking, and we are located on the ground floor, wheelchair accessible.
The center is open immediately before, during and after scheduled events and classes. See our calendar for specific days and times.
Enter into the reception room, where there is a coat rack and place to leave your shoes. Classes are held in the main meditation room, adjacent to the main reception area. There are plenty of comfortable chairs, and we have cushions for sitting on the floor. We strive to create a physical environment that is quiet and peaceful, where people can enjoy a break from ordinary problems and concerns.
There is no particular dress code for events at the center. Casual dress is appropriate.
