Dharma Festival of Switzerland – Italy – Austria

Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for over thirty years, sincerely training under his guidance in all aspects of Kadam Dharma. Gen-la is recognised as a fully qualified teacher of Sutra and Tantra. She is known for her powerful and inspiring teachings and her living example on how to apply Buddha’s advice into daily life.
The Swiss, Italian, Austrian Dharma Festival is taking place at Kailash International Retreat Centre situated high in the Swiss mountains on the sunny side of the traditional mountain village of Törbel. The view up the Matter and Saas valleys is breathtaking, crowned by the 4000M Weisshorn mountain. Because of its seclusion and tranquil surroundings, Kailash is an ideal place for contemplation as well as enjoying the company of like-minded people. Kailash IRC belongs to the New Kadampa Tradition and offers wholesome conditions for those who wish to engage in shorter or longer retreats.
The course will be held in English and translated into German, Italian and French. If you require translation in another language, please let us know.
Kailash IRC is a non-profit charity and the Retreat Centre, B&B and courses are all run by a few volunteers. Therefore it is common practice during an event at Kailash IRC that every participant helps with some jobs (e.g. chopping vegetables, washing dishes, tidying up etc.) and the final cleaning at the end of the course.
