Kadam John McBretney is the Resident Teacher of Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre, 11 Woodstock Road, Golders Green, London NW11 8ES.

As a disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, his Spiritual Guide, for thirty years he shows how to solve our daily life problems of stress, anxiety, frustration and so on through practising modern Buddhism, especially by developing a compassionate, good heart and wisdom.

The great Master Dromtonpa said, ‘Kadam Dharma is like a mala made of gold.’ Just as everyone, even those who do not use a mala (or prayer beads), would be happy to accept a gift of a gold mala because it is made of gold, in a similar way, everyone, even non-Buddhists, can receive benefit from Kadam Dharma. This is because there is no difference between Kadam Dharma and people’s everyday experiences.
