Preparing for Spring Festival

Preparing for Spring Festival

Spring Festival 2015 is only 10 days away.

Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab be granting the blessing Empowerment of Medicine Buddha and giving Teachings at this year’s Spring Festival. Please enjoy this video Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab giving an Introduction to last years’ Summer Festival.

Our Festival set up volunteers have come from Switzerland, Germany, Finland, Belgium, Italy, Czech Republic, ….Liverpool and Yorkshire!

We had a great first day; the Temple awnings are now beginning to take shape and the Festival ‘burger bar’ was moved into position.

It wasn’t all work however, the volunteers took some time in the middle of the day to watch the video on the history of Conishead Priory and enjoy a guided meditation in the Kadampa World Peace Temple.

Only 11 days to go until we begin our 21st NKT Spring Festival.

Book Now!
