Regional courses

Regional courses are a very important part of the modern Kadampa way of life because they give people from many different centers an opportunity to come together to receive empowerments and teachings and to share experiences and inspiration.

They can be National Festivals, usually taught by a Gen-la, or Dharma Celebrations, usually taught by the National Spiritual Director for the region.
