receiving blessings & collecting merit in the mountains
Every year, Kadampa centers around the world arrange preliminary retreats in which people engage in practices that help prepare the mind for deeper meditation. Generally these retreats are four sessions a day over seven days, and you can participate in as many or few sessions as you wish.
Recently, KMC Barcelona held a preliminary retreat at their retreat center in Montserrat. The retreat was on Guru Yoga and mandala offerings, a preliminary for receiving blessings and collecting merit.

KMC Barcelona in Montserrat was founded in 1992 by the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Its current headquarters in the city of Barcelona, was inaugurated in April 2014.
The center offers the study programs of the New Kadampa Tradition in the form of classes, meditations, conferences, gatherings, courses, urban retreats, etc.
During these years, the Center has hosted important events as well as visits from Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang and Gen Kelsang Chokga, National Spiritual Director.
All activities are designed for students to find practical methods to solve their everyday problems constructively, learn to transform their minds, develop their human potential, and find lasting peace and happiness.
