  • (1888PressRelease) March 14, 2013 - Westlake Village, CA - The Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center is celebrating its second anniversary at the Water Court in Westlake Village with an Open House. The center has been part of the community for five years, relocating to Westlake after outgrowing its previous location in Thousand Oaks in three short years.

    The Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center is one of 1100 worldwide founded by the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, a fully accomplished meditation master and internationally renowned Buddhist teacher. In his teachings Geshe Kelsang emphasizes the importance of meditation and how to apply it in daily life, the need to be truly happy and how to cultivate a good heart to help others.

    Resident Teacher Rebecca Gauthier has been teaching for more than19 years with warmth, humor and a heartfelt, practical style that is an inspiring example of Buddhism in practice.

    "When we opened Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center, our aim was to establish a center where people could learn methods on how to achieve inner peace, contentment and relaxation. We offer 10 different classes every week. Our most popular class is Prayers for World Peace on Sundays, where families can come together and meditate and we have special classes for teens and children"

    "Today's modern world can be difficult, challenging and confusing and meditation offers powerful tools kids can use to develop peace and happiness from within. Parents tell me all the time that their children are more relaxed, confident and less stressed, can concentrate better in school and are able to resolve conflicts quickly and easily."

    Len Foley, a teacher at the Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center since it's inception in 2008, "Many of my students are busy professionals. They have discovered that the practice of meditation helps them to become more solution oriented, improve their communication with others and enjoy a better quality of life because they are more peaceful and happy. Meditation is not only important for our spiritual well-being, it is essential for personal and professional success."

    "The heart of Buddhism is compassion and in honor of our second anniversary in Westlake Village The Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center is sponsoring a food drive for Manna, the local food bank. We are asking the community to bring canned and dry goods to donate for our friends and neighbors in need."

    Jennifer Schwabauer, Manna's Executive Director, "It's hard to imagine that hunger exists in the Conejo Valley, but it does. Over 95 percent of the food Manna distributes to its clients is donated through community food drives and we are fortunate to be located in such a caring community."

    The Open House is an opportunity to visit a Buddhist Center and see what it's all about. Resident teacher Rebecca Gauthier will teach a FREE two-hour meditation workshop and there will be a full day of activities, including a magic show for the kids and a vegetarian potluck.
