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.
Festivals help us realize Venerable Geshe-la’s vision of a global community guided by wisdom and compassion and dedicated to benefiting others!
Summer Festival this year will be July 29-August 13 at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Center in the UK. Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and give teachings the first week from the book Clear Light of Bliss, which explains how we can transform our very subtle mind into the clear light of bliss, the actual quick path to enlightenment. Gen-la Kelsang Jampa continues these teachings in week two.
Everyone is welcome to attend Festivals! Registration for Summer Festival is now open!
