‘This has been the most fantastic experience of my life. It has been so enriching and enlightening for me. Thank you for everything.’

With these words, Sujata who recently started attending the General Program at Heruka KMC in London expressed a sentiment that was shared by everyone who attended the UK Dharma Celebration this weekend at Tara KMC.

At this amazing event, Kadam Bridget Heyes, the National Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU for UK and Ireland, granted the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and gave teachings on the three types of love from The New Eight Steps to Happiness by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

375 people enjoyed the extraordinary weather, basking in the brilliant Easter sun and enjoying Tara Centre at its very best.

More inspiring quotes
The quotes below are all from people who were attending their very first Dharma Celebration:

'I am totally and utterly overawed by the hard work dedication and devotion of the people involved in this event. Kadam Bridget's inspirational teaching has definitely moved me further along my spiritual path. And it was incredible to share this experience with my Sangha friends.'

'My first UKDC - such an enjoyable few days with a genuinely warm and welcoming group of like-minded people. The teachings were delivered in a clear and understandable way, supported by real examples and enhanced with humour. Nothing felt distant or unattainable. I have no doubt that by adopting these practical guidelines, significant improvements will occur in my life and the world around me.'

'Wow – I am so lucky to have come to UKDC for the first time and to experience such an inspiring event filled with meditation, teaching and an empowerment. Not only am I blessed by Buddha, I am blessed to be with and meet such kind, warm and open people from all different walks of life. It has been my favourite ‘festival’ ever - celebration of life and love.'

'Although this was my first time I immediately felt at home here - such a warm welcome. It has been a wonderfully peaceful experience and I can’t wait to come back.'
