Ever spring, summer and fall, International Kadampa festivals are held, two at our mother center in the UK and one at a Kadampa Meditation Center somewhere else in the world. Festivals are a great opportunity to meet other Kadampas from around the world, to be inspired by teachings given by senior teachers, and to receive empowerments. Guided meditations and retreats are also part of Festivals.
During the 2022 Fall Festival, Gen-la Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Green Tara and give special teachings on the sublime twenty-one homages based on a transmission she received directly from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
Green Tara is a female enlightened being, the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, who protects living beings from outer and inner obstacles and guides them to the attainment of all the stages of the path to enlightenment.
Everyone is welcome to attend Festivals! Registration for Fall Festival is now open!
