Day 3 ~ Summer Festival 2021

First we learned to listen well and thus create perfect inner conditions for the empowerment of Dorje Shugden. Then yesterday we received this extraordinary empowerment from Gen-la Dekyong. It was so clear, so accessible and so transforming!

Day 2 ~ Summer Festival 2021

Last night, Gen Thekchen opened the 2021 Summer Festival online with an inspiring introductory teaching setting the scene for this extraordinary event. And today, Gen-la Dekyong will grant the empowerment of Dorje Shugden. How wonderful!

Day 1 ~ Summer Festival 2021

Through the great kindness of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the Founder of these Festivals, for the very first time the Summer Festival will be hosted and broadcast from multiple locations around the world simultaneously.

Getting ready for the Festival

Just days away from the 2021 Summer Festival, centers around the world are busy preparing to host people who will come together to join the Festival at their location. Are you ready? If you haven’t already done so book now.

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.

An intensive program for the Teachers

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.
