A special time for Kadampa centers worldwide

This weekend, many Kadampa centers around the world took advantage of the Easter holidays to offer special events. And with Saturday being NKT Day it was also an occasion for special pujas and celebrations. In this first post on the events of the weekend we feature the mother center, Manjushri KMC in the UK and IKRC Grand Canyon in the US.

A special event at KMC Montreal

People across Quebec recently enjoyed the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya granted by Gen Kelsang Chögyan, the Resident Teacher at KMC Montreal
as part of their 25 year anniversary. See also the featured center page with a special message from Gen-la Khyenrab.

The Kadampa union in action

The International Kadampa Buddhist Union is a global spiritual family emanating from the heart of our precious Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. One of the many advantages of this union is that because the Dharma and spiritual direction are the same for all constituent centers it is easy for them to engage in cooperative ventures. Here we feature two recent collaborations.

Perceiving only empty like space

This past weekend, KMC Canada hosted a special weekend event at which Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, retired General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU and National Spiritual Director for Canada gave profound teachings on the ultimate nature of all phenomena. The event was open to everyone in Canada.

Finding a happy life

In a Public Talk Gen-la Khyenrab recently gave, he explains how to transform our mind from its present confused and self-centred state into perfect wisdom and compassion and thereby fulfil our deepest wishes for a happy life.
