The annual Kadampa US Festival is an opportunity for people from around the country to gather together in the glorious environment of our beautiful World Peace Temple and share in the inspiration of profound and exquisite teachings. This chance to reconnect with friends from other parts of the country and to receive teachings that speak directly to our capacity for improving the lives of ourselves and others brings great meaning to our “spiritual vacation.”
The US Festival is inspired by the fully accomplished Buddhist meditation master and internationally renowned teacher, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
In this Festival, Gen-la Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Arya Green Tara.
Enlightened Mother Arya Tara, manifestation of the swift, wind element, of all the Buddhas, is greatly delighted with those who sincerely practice Kadam Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightenment. She promised Atisha, the Founder of Kadam Lamrim, to give her special care, protection and blessings to his followers throughout their life, and in life after life.
Gen-la Khyenrab will further explain how we can recognize all conventional appearances as the magical, or illusory, play of the mind and how we can stop grasping strongly at their apparent differences through recognizing everything as a manifestation of emptiness, the actual nature of all things.
April 27 – May 2, 2018
