Buddhism & Meditation
KMC Florida is a relaxed and flourishing meditation Center situated on 1.6 acres in the heart of Sarasota, a beautiful city on the Florida West Coast that is known as “the cultural capital of Florida”.
In Ocean of Nectar, Geshe Kelsang continues this noble tradition by providing an explanation of Chandrakirti’s famous commentary Guide to the Middle Way.
With breathtaking clarity and insight he guides us step by step through a matrix of profound subjects, making them easy to understand for the modern day reader and bringing the Mahayana Path within reach of all of us.
