Is there a dress code?

Short answer is No. Longer answer is that to preserve the respectful, meditative atmosphere of Kadampa Center and minimize distraction, please consider dressing in a conservative, modest manner.  Casual clothing is generally appropriate; most of our members wear trousers or jeans. Please avoid short shorts and revealing tops. If you plan to sit on a meditation cushion, you will be more comfortable in loose clothes. We also have chairs for those who prefer them. It is also our custom to remove our shoes when entering the gompa, or main meditation/teaching hall, so you may want to consider that when choosing your shoes!
