Only one month to go to the start of our 20th annual International Spring Festival – a wonderful opportunity to experience modern Buddhism in action at an international level, and to enjoy an inspiring and meaningful spiritual holiday at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, the mother centre of the New Kadampa Tradition and home to the first Kadampa Temple for World Peace.
The occasion is marked by special events and by pujas and dedications at Kadampa centers worldwide.
Prayers are made for the flourishing of Kadam Dharma throughout the world so that all living beings might quickly find permanent inner peace.
Above all, we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe Kelsang in founding NKT-IKBU and pray for him to remain with us for a very long time.
Booking is now live for the 2014 NKT Summer Festival at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, England. Please visit kadampafestivals.org/summer to book.
During week 1 of the Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang will give teachings on the power of Kadam Lamrim. During week 2 of the Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Avalokiteshvara, Buddha of Compassion, and give teachings on the practice of Powa or transference of consciousness.
Everyone is welcome to come to the Festival to enjoy a summer holiday with a difference. Spend some inspiring time in the English Lake District with people from all over the world developing inner peace through the practices of modern Buddhism. Come away refreshed, invigorated and inspired – equipped with the essential tools to transform your everyday life into a meaningful spiritual path that brings immense benefit to both yourself and those with whom you live and work. You can attend either week of the Festival or both together – or come for just a few days.
