The highlight of our summer was hosting the NKT International Festival.
Venerable Geshe-la granted the empowerment of 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara and gave a commentary to Universal Compassion
It was a special time to be together with our Kadampa family
In September the new Kadampa Art Studio was completed
The fully equiped, purpose built spaces looked very clean!
The Studio Team moved everything from their temporary workshops
The job was made easier with the new Stacker!
This is a perfect place to make qualified Kadampa Statues.Thank you Geshe-la
There is a clean new warehouse to store all of the moulds
The Statue Filling Room is now set up…

The casting team have started work on Buddha Shakyamuni destined for the new Kadampa Temple in Brazil
Meanwhile back in Conishead Priory itself,a new project is being planned to restore the Chapel, the roof and ..
