International Kadampa Festivals

International Kadampa Festivals are special courses taught by the Spiritual Director and Deputy Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition.

The Festivals include teachings and empowerments from the principal Teacher, reviews and meditations led by senior NKT Teachers, chanted meditations and offering ceremonies, and retreats to consolidate and deepen your understanding and experience.
