Meaningful holidays

The international Kadampa festivals are special courses taught by the spiritual director Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong and the deputy spiritual director Gen-la Kelsang Jampa.

The festivals include teachings and empowerments, reviews and guided meditations, chanted prayers and offering ceremonies, and retreats to deepen the understanding and virtuous minds of those at the festival.

Open to everyone, these international festivals present a wonderful opportunity to improve our experience of Buddha’s teachings. They also enable us to meet with Buddhist practitioners from all over the world, make lasting friends and share experiences with like-minded people.
