Modern Life – Buddhism's Enduring Relevance

The methods revealed within Buddhism have stood the test of time and are as relevant today as they were 2500 years ago.

Kadam Dharma is like a mala made of gold. Just as everyone, even those who do not use a mala, 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.
