Venue & Accommodations

This year’s California Dharma Celebration will be held at the new Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood in Los Angeles. Thanks to the great kindness of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and through the generous support of the International Temples Project, a new World Peace Temple was purchased in Los Angeles in 2013. This Temple is located in the heart of Los Feliz, a beautiful, dynamic neighborhood at the base of the Hollywood Hills. Minutes from famed Hollywood Boulevard and Griffith Park, the KMC Hollywood Temple is an inspiring place to visit in a prime Los Angeles neighborhood seen by thousands of people every day.
