23 Fall Day 3 12

The second full day of Festival began with a morning meditation using the Medicine Buddha Sadhana, giving us the opportunity to draw closer to the practice.  Then over two sessions we received a clear, inspiring and complete commentary to the practice of Medicine Buddha from Gen-la Khyenrab.  He also shared with us extremely inspiring advice from Venerable Geshe-la on the importance of prayer as a main cause of peace in the world.  A key function of the Medicine Buddha practices are to develop a special power of body, speech and mind so that we can truly help to release others from suffering and fear.

Day 3 ~ Enjoying Festival Life

Spring-festival2023-buddha

Everyone is enjoying their spiritual holiday in the beautiful environment of KMC Spain. Venerable Geshe-la often called our Festivals spiritual holidays because he saw they gave us a very meaningful opportunity to be immersed in the teachings while enjoying a relaxing time with spiritual friends in a blessed environment.  By learning to integrate all our activities at the Festival into the spiritual path our enjoyment becomes very meaningful and gradually more pure. This includes time spent volunteering, socialising, resting, eating delicious Mediterranean foods, swimming in the pool or browsing in the shop.

The happiness we experience on a spiritual holiday can be completely unlike the happiness we experience on an ordinary holiday, bringing lasting transformation and benefit for ourself and others. In this way, through the kindness of Geshe-la, even busy, modern people can progress on the spiritual path through combining their holidays with spiritual practice!

When we connect with Enlightened beings we receive blessings, if we receive blessings then we will be happy.
