Last weekend Manjushri KMC took another step towards normal operations as it hosted a Summer Retreat that included residential accommodation. Entitled Permission to be Peaceful it was led by Gen Kelsang Sherab, Resident Teacher of Compassion KBC in the UK. It was a magical weekend and participants delighted in the beautiful weather and peaceful atmosphere. See the wonderful photos and reviews for this event below and check the brochure for events to come.
Along with many other Kadampa centers, KMC London is preparing to open its doors again to the public after a break for the summer, and in many cases much longer. The community at the Temple in Morden have been busy preparing the Temple to welcome everyone back, including major renovation work on the entrances.
Over 200 people are enjoying the post Summer Festival Retreat at Tara International Kadampa Retreat Centre this week, with 50 in-person and the remainder taking part online. And after months of careful restoration – repainting and gold leafing – the Buddha Shakyamuni statue was installed in the shrine for the retreat!
