National Kadampa Festivals and Celebrations

The Canadian National Festival

The Canadian National Kadampa Festival will be held Spring 2023 at our National Canadian Temple, Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada.  Our annual Canadian National Festival is a special event where people come together from all across Canada to enjoy meditations, teachings and connect with spiritual friends.

Buddha’s teachings are understood at many levels, and therefore can appeal to a great variety of people regardless of their experience. Whether you know a little about Buddhism or nothing at all, the Festival is designed to touch your heart.
