Future Festivals – save the dates

Booking for the 2022 International Spring and Summer Festivals is now open on the Kadampa Festivals website, but what comes next? Here we briefly preview the next three international Festivals, Fall 2022, Spring 2023 and Summer 2023.

Special Days in Canada

In a few days ( May 13-17) for the first time in three years people from throughout Canada will be able to gather in-person to enjoy their National Festival with their National Spiritual Director Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab. This is such a special event for Canadian Sangha not to be missed.

Have you thought about a post festival retreat?

After each International Festival, Kadampa centers around the world organise post-Festival retreats providing an opportunity to spend some time improving our understanding of the teachings and taking their meaning to heart.

Gen-la Khyenrab visits western Canada

This weekend, for the first time in three years, people in western Canada gathered in person for a Public Talk followed by the Western Canada Dharma Celebration presented directly by Canada’s National Spiritual Director, Gen-la Khynerab!

Featured Book ~ Heart Jewel

This month’s featured book is Heart Jewel by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, a precious book revealing the heart practices of Modern Kadampa Buddhism.

Re-opening the Malaga urban temple

A team of volunteers recently worked hard to prepare the Urban Temple in the city of Málaga to reopen after a long period of closure due to Covid. This is followed by a week of FREE classes and activities to welcome everyone back.

Week 2 review ~ Summer Festival 2021

As the International Summer Festival 2021 draws to a close this is a great time to look back over the delightful days of Week 2 as revealed in the Festival Diaries

Why not attend the Festival at a center?

Although only a few people are able to attend the Festival directly at Manjushri KMC, many centers around the world will be holding ‘mini festivals’ open to the public, where you can safely watch a broadcast of the Festival, often with live translation, as well as join with the Kadampa family for meditations, discussion and much more. This is the first time an International Festival will be hosted at a number of different locations.

Featured Book ~ Universal Compassion

This month’s featured book is Universal Compassion. A truly inspiring book with perfect solutions for contemporary problems. Discover more about this extraordinary gift from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

13 ~ The Temple progresses inside and out

The very kind contractors are making tremendous progress with the Temple both outside and in. And they always have time for a wave and a joke when the cameras appear. Meanwhile the vajra seat for the top of the Temple is almost complete as it is coated in copper.
