In December, over two hundred people gathered from within the state of California and throughout the United States at the University of Philosophical Research to receive the empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and teachings from Gen-la Dekyong at the California Dharma Celebration. Enjoy the slideshow of images taken at the Celebration.
We invite you to join the Youth Group of KMC Washington as they re-enact the true Buddhist story of when Buddha Tara manifested as an island called Chandradeva to help a man called Chandragomin who took sincere refuge in her.
KMC Australia is the mother centre of Kadampa Buddhism in Australia and is the host of Kadam Dharma Celebrations and Festivals. Based at Camp Waterman in the exquisite Dandenong ranges at the edge of Melbourne’s urban sprawl, the Centre offers a complete range of meditation courses and retreats, from drop-in weekly evening classes, day workshops and weekend retreats to week and month-long retreats and in-depth study programmes.
If we train in meditation and receive Buddha’s blessings, our mind gradually becomes more and more peaceful, and we experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Join Kailash IRC, KMC Australia, KMC Florida, KMC Mexico, KMC New Mexico and KMC Washington as they make preparations for and host end of year empowerment ceremonies and daily prayers.
This DVD is the story of the dedicated international team who have transformed a run-down chateau in the French countryside into an oasis of spiritual peace. We join them at the final stage of their extraordinary endeavour when they are blessed by a visit from their spiritual guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (Geshe-la)
“It is not an ordinary castle, it is a palace someone prepared for you. Now this is the basic foundation for the future of Kadam dharma throughout France and throughout the world…” (Geshe-la)
It contains unseen footage of Geshe-la’s visit; including a blessing ceremony and a teaching. It is playable across all regions and offers subtitles in six languages (French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Chinese & English).
