Spring and Summer Kadampa Festivals 2016

Spring Festival 2016 – Protecting our Spiritual Practice

Dorje Shugden Empowerment and Commentary

May 27 – June 1 with Gen-la Dekyong

‘Je Tsongkhapa himself appears as Dorje Shugden to prevent his doctrine of the Ganden Oral Lineage from degenerating by pacifying obstacles, gathering necessary conditions and bestowing powerful blessings upon practitioners of these teachings.

If we continually rely upon Dorje Shugden with faith, he will care for us like a mother cares for her child. He will guide us to the correct path, or liberating path, pacify our obstacles, gather necessary conditions for us and bestow upon us powerful blessings.’

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso – Summer Festival 2006

Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will grant the blessing empowerment of Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and give commentary. A perfect preparation for those wishing to receive the transmission of the Oral Instructions of the Mahamudra at the Summer Festival.

Booking Open

Summer Festival 2016 – The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra

The Very Essence of Buddha’s Teachings
on Sutra and Tantra
July 22 – August 6 with Gen-la Dekyong & Gen-la Khyenrab

The oral instructions of Mahamudra are the heart practice of Kadam Dharma. They include special methods according to Highest Yoga Tantra that lead to the accomplishment of the union of great bliss and emptiness and eventually to the union of Buddhahood, full enlightenment. By following these blessed instructions sincerely it is possible to attain enlightenment in one short life.

In the summer of 2015 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche directly transmitted these precious instructions to Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong and Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab.

Now, at the 2016 Summer Festival the two Gen-la’s will publicly grant this transmission directly. What extraordinary good fortune!
