What's your reason for taking part?
In 1995 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche said,
"I greatly appreciate your coming here to this, the first NKT Spring Festival. We hope that you will enjoy it this year, and that from generation to generation the NKT Spring and Summer Festivals will continue without ceasing for as long as the world remains."
We asked Kadampa Teachers around the world what reasons there are to join this year's Spring Festival Online.

I have only one thing to add to Venerable Geshe-la's words. Now that the Spring Festival is online it has never been easier to attend, so this year let's all try to join in. Can you imagine the the look of delight on our Guru's face if we do this?

The power of the teachings and blessings we receive during such an event give so much spiritual energy and inspiration to practice Buddha's precious instructions in our daily life. And this year will be very special, beause we will all be connected virtually to the worldwide Kadampa family. How fortunate we are!

Being part of these Festivals is an historical opportunity to realise that the distance we normally see does not exist and to start perceiving no-limits, as a Buddha does.

During such a Festival we can put the countless pieces of Dharma that books give us into place, and begin to glimpse the figure that this immense puzzle will form. We gain so many achievements, so much blessings, so much merit, so much wisdom, that we feel we have taken an immense step on our spiritual path.
