US Festival   2017   April 21st - 26th

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. This year, join us as Gen-la Khyenrab, the Retired General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition and the Resident Teacher at KMC Canada, will grant the empowerment of the Great Mother Prajnaparamita. Gen-la will also give teachings on how we can develop our own enlightened wisdom.
