2017 International Fall Festival

2017 International Fall Festival
Empowerment of Buddha Avalokiteshvara and teachings on Universal Compassion

Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

Taught by Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

October 6 to 12, 2017

At this festival, Gen-la Dekyong will explain the essential practices

of training the mind (Lojong) based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Rinpoche’s book Universal Compassion. The practices of training the mind

are exceptionally powerful methods for overcoming our delusions,

especially our self-cherishing, and for gaining deep realizations of

conventional and ultimate bodhichitta. In this way, we can attain the

real meaning of our human life – enlightenment.


About Festivals and Celebrations

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organizes a world wide program of special courses on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living. The program includes International Festivals, National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations.

These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the NKT.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised. For festivals and celebrations world-wide, visit kadampafestivals.org.
