THE SOURCE OF HAPPINESS & GOODNESS

with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

May 26 - 31, 2023, at Manjushri KMC, UK

Special commentary to the Liberating Prayer & International Refuge Vow Ceremony

The Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning. All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer. I can say very few people understand the Liberating Prayer. It definitely needs verbal commentary by a Teacher. If we understand and contemplate its meaning - it is the best method to develop faith in Buddha and his teachings, which is our spiritual life and the root of all Dharma realizations.
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

At this Festival Gen-la Dekyong will share a special transmission and blessing of the meaning of this prayer that she received directly from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. She will also bring together commentary Venerable Geshe-la has given on the meaning of different verses of this prayer over many years.

There will also be an opportunity to engage in a powerful and immensely meaningful International Refuge Vow Ceremony with the worldwide Kadampa family.

More information coming soon.
