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 year in NKT

NKT was formally registered as a charity in July 1991. On Saturday April 3 the following year, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche inaugurated NKT Day, which was to be celebrated on the first Saturday in April every year.

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.
