After many years of not being able to gather, this past weekend over 60 fortunate Kadampas met up in Wellington for the 2022 New Zealand Festival.

Australian Festival 2022

National Spiritual Director for Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, Gen Kelsang Rabten came to Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia, to grant the blessing empowerment of 1000-Armed Avalokiteshvara.
Gen Rabten also gave inspiring teachings on the precious mind of bodhichitta – the best method for bestowing happiness, eliminating suffering, and dispelling confusion.

Australians celebrate in person

After many months of travel and other restrictions, the people of Australia were finally able to gather last weekend for an in-person National Dharma Celebration with their National Spiritual Director Gen kelsang Rabten.

Inspiring pujas, inspiring times

In a sign that we are emerging from the pandemic restrictions and returning to normal operations – but with renewed vigor – many centers held full length in-person retreats over January. And some finished with fire pujas and self initiation pujas on site. Here we feature three of these – each with a remarkable story to tell.

Fresh beginnings in Australia

January is retreat month at KMC Australia. Gen Kelsang Dornying led a weekend retreat to kick off the new year, which was followed by three other weekend retreat opportunities including a silent meditation retreat on emptiness, a retreat on How to Transform Your Life, and a silent retreat for beginners.

Everyone wants to be more peaceful

Enjoy this inspiring video from KMC Sydney introduced by Gen Kelsang Lhachog, the Resident Teacher. How wonderful to see the impact Kadam Dharma has on the lives of people living in a busy city!

A true foundation for happiness

The Foundation Program is one of the three study programs that are the core of Modern Kadampa Buddhism. It is deeply appreciated by thousands of people around the world, for whom it often has hugely beneficial life-changing results.

Resilience in the face of adversity

These days climatic and environmental hazards frequently present us with adverse conditions that might otherwise thwart our plans to benefit others. Here is the story of two Kadampa communities who were confronted with such conditions and who worked diligently to ensure the delivery of Dharma was maintained and protect the people who visit their centers.

Blessings of compassion in New Zealand

People throughout New Zealand gathered at the four centers in New Zealand – Amitabha Centre, KMC Auckland, KMC Wellington and Kalpa Bhadra Centre in Christchurch – to enjoy the New Zealand Dharma Celebration online from Manjushri KMC this weekend.
