Spring Festival time is here! For each NKT-IKBU International Festival, Tharpa opens a Festival Shop both online and at the Festival venue. The Shop offers a special opportunity to buy all Festival-related Tharpa products, such as books, art and sadhanas, as well as new and updated products.

Deepen Your Experience with a Post-festival retreat

The three International Festivals are precious opportunities to receive teachings and empowerments from the Gen-las, and this experience is greatly enhanced if we can spend some time after the Festival in retreat improving our understanding of the teachings and taking their meaning to heart. Kadampa centers worldwide organize post-festival retreats after each of the three International Festivals. See the retreats following the 2024 Spring Festival.
