Students from around Florida, including Fort Myers, Miami, Jacksonville, and Port St Lucie, joined the local sangha for this very special day, which included commentary on the Liberating Prayer.
Buddha Shakyamuni Empowerment at Nagarjuna KMC Leicester, UK
"We had a truly wonderful experience at Nagarjuna KMC Leicester on Sunday as we received the Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni from Kadam Chris Heyes. With 70 attendees, everyone enjoyed a vibrant yet peaceful atmosphere and inspiring teachings.
Following this, we watched a video celebrating the International Temples Project. This video was very well-received and helped everyone understand that we are part of a global tradition that is steadily expanding and spreading the teachings of Kadam Dharma to more and more people and countries.
Such a blessed day!"
