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.
The Intensive Teacher Training Program is called ‘intensive’ for a reason. For three weeks, the Teachers follow a rigorous 6-day a week schedule of teachings, teaching skills, discussion, memorisation and prayers. Venerable Geshe-la has designed this special program to give Resident Teachers from the centers around the world the opportunity to engage in intensive in-service training.
