After intensive months of deep study and meditation on Kadam Lamrim of Sutra and Tantra presented by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in two of his books: Joyful Path of Good Fortune and Modern Buddhism, the participants are now ready to take on new responsibilities and help to flourish Kadam Dharma throughout this world.
"From this six months I take more faith, a greater determination to teach Dharma, a greater understanding of the correct functioning of a Kadampa Centre and the role of a Resident Teacher. As well as an understanding of the Common Path that I never had before."
"I feel so grateful and fortunate having gained a deeper understanding of Kadam Lamrim of Sutra and Tantra and being now more connected to Venerable Geshe-la, our Tradition, Gen-la Khyenrab, Gen-la Dekyong and all the managers and kind people in our tradition at Manjushri KMC."
"In this extraordinary training I received everything I need to know to become a sincere Dharma practitioner and to maintain my practice purely.
Now, with deep gratitude, I want to put this knowledge and wisdom into practice and inspire others by my example and by teaching what I was taught."
