Festivals

Festivals are a wonderful opportunity for modern Kadampa disciples to gather together and receive Blessing Empowerments and teachings. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso has organized International Festivals around the world that are accessible for everyone.

International Festivals

The New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union ([NKT-IKBU] organizes three international festivals each year: Spring (May) and Summer (July-August) Festivals held at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre in Ulverson, UK and a Fall Festival hosted by a different country each year.

National Festivals

In addition to International Festivals, each country organizes a National Kadampa Festival each year with a visiting teacher. The Canadian National Festival is typically held each June at Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada.
