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.

Ten weeks of inner development

Over the span of 10 weeks, 540 Kadampa from all over the world engaged in KMC New York’s first-ever virtual Winter Retreat. Thousands of hours of meditation were accumulated by the day, under the guidance of Gen Samten, who led over 140 sessions.

Special blessings, special dedication

This weekend, over 600 people tuned into the online weekend course at Manjushri KMC on refuge with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU. On Saturday, in the Kadampa Temple for World Peace, Gen-la presided over a deeply inspiring and heartfelt Mahayana Refuge Ceremony, which was made all the more powerful by the fact that hundreds of people around the world shared in receiving the special blessings of refuge and making sincere dedications for the sake of all living beings.
