Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day and the birthday of our Spiritual Guide

Today, Dharmachakra Day, is the day we celebrate the birthday of our precious Spiritual Guide and Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Venerable Geshe-la worked throughout his life to make Kadam Dharma available to people throughout the world, showing how it is the best method to solve daily problems.

Drawing closer to Buddha

Several centers took an important step forward during the month of May, organizing special ceremonies (at KMC France and KMC Slovenia) and special courses (at KMC Hong Kong and Lamrim KBC in Valladolid, Spain).

A Dharma tour of Switzerland with Gen-la Kunsang

Our National Spiritual Director, Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang, visited Switzerland from 6–15 May 2024. In 10 days she visited Kadampa centers throughout the country and held public talks in our largest cities. With her pure example and boundless energy for the inner spiritual path, she brought great energy and inspiration to all these places and met with many people from all walks of life.
