We have had beautiful winter weather …

And Christmas Card snows at KMC NY in January and February

The US Kadampa World Peace Temple looks so magical …

… more than ever like a Pure Land!

The Dharma Wheel and Deer are covered by a snowy blanket …

… but we can think …

… this won’t be for long!

We are starting to image and plan for the US Festival –

scheduled for Springtime –

Thursday, April 23 – Tuesday, April 28 …

“The Path to Perfect Freedom,” with Gen-la Khyenrab

We’ll make everything sparkling clean, inviting …

… and comfortable for our special guests …

… hundreds of them – the largest gathering of Kadampas this year in North America!

And they will be hungry …

… just look at them! :-)

The spring bulbs and magnolias will be glorious

The whole Temple will be full …

… with joyful Kadampa friends from the 50 US States and Canada …

… all so grateful to receive Buddha Shakyamuni empowerment and teachings on the Four Noble Truths from Gen-la Khyenrab

Gen-la Dekyong will guide us to meditate on Gen-la Khyenrab’s teachings

Gen Samten will give the introductory teaching to start the Festival …

… and Kadam Morten will lead two days of blissful retreat

Immediately following the Festival, Gen Chonden will lead a two day torma-making workshop at KMC NY,
