Spring 2015 festival 2015

In May, Manjushri KMC, UK will host the 21st International Spring Festival.

During the Festival, Gen-la Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of Medicine Buddha and teach how by relying upon this Buddha Doctor we can be cured of the inner sickness of the delusions and heal our mental continuum. We will then be free from sickness forever and become an actual Buddha Doctor ourselves.

Booking Opens: March 12

International Temples Day 2014

Portugal Temple

Saturday November 1, 2014 is NKT International Temples Day, when Kadampa centers worldwide celebrate the International Temples Project. The International Temples Project was founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, with the aim to introduce the Buddhist faith and practice of the New Kadampa Tradition publicly, and to exemplify contemporary Buddhist practice through service to the public. It presently achieves this through building traditional and non-traditional temples, meditation and retreat centres, and through the activities of Kadampa schools, world peace cafés and Tharpa Publications.

Through Kadampa Temples flourishing throughout the world more and more people will receive the blessings of inner peace, and through inner peace there will come outer peace. Read about ways you can help this auspicious project.
