US Festival 2017

Stainless Wisdom

Empowerment of the Great Mother Prajnaparamita & Teachings on the Heart Sutra

April 21 – 26 at the Kadampa World Peace Temple in Glen Spey, NY.

Everyone Welcome

The annual US Kadampa 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.

The Teachings

Gen-la Khyenrab will grant the empowerment of the Great Mother Prajnaparamita, through which we can receive her blessings to increase our wisdom.

In these uncertain times, wisdom is increasingly important for our daily happiness. As our wisdom grows, our problems diminish. In the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras, Buddha gave special wisdom instructions which, if put into practice, have the power to give us the permanent peace of liberation and enlightenment.

Gen-la will also explain how through receiving the special blessings of Great Mother Prajnaparamita we can quickly develop our own enlightened wisdom – the real method to practically benefit ourself and others.
