Much to celebrate

Every year at a national level NKT organises National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations in various countries . The Festivals are usually taught by Gen-las and the Celebrations by the National Spiritual Director for that country. Here are three Dharma Celebrations scheduled for the coming week:

This is magical

Today, October 25, is Je Tsongkhapa Day. Je Tsongkhapa is an emanation of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism. Buddha emanates as Je Tsongkhapa to spread his pure teachings of Sutra and Tantra in general, and especially Highest Yoga Tantra, throughout the world.

Looking into the mirror of Dharma at the mother center

What better way to take the special teachings of the 2019 Fall Festival deeper into your heart than to spend some time at the mother center in profound guided meditation retreat in January 2020? January is a special time at Manjushri KMC when the whole centre enters into retreat mode for four weeks of winter retreat and an extraordinary calm falls upon the environment.

Retreat roundup

Today we complete our roundup of the post Fall Festival retreats 2019 with photos from an urban retreat at KMC Mexico with Guen Sangden, and rural retreats at Madhyamaka KMC with Gen Tharpa, KMC Phoenix with Kadam Lucy, and KMC Brasil with Gen Togden.

Prostrating to the new moon

The same is true of the development of the International Temples Project (ITP). Although much has been accomplished in recent years with the completion of five major Temples for World Peace and scores of smaller urban Temples, within the context of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s vast, compassionate vision this is just the beginning – the new moon.
