Festivals & Celebrations
International Kadampa Festivals are special courses held three times each year and are open to everyone. The Festivals include teachings and empowerments by the Spiritual Directors of the New Kadampa Tradition, reviews and meditations led by senior Teachers, chanted prayers and meditations and offering ceremonies, and retreats to consolidate and deepen your understanding and experience. Open to everyone, these International Festivals are a wonderful opportunity to meet with Buddhist practitioners from all over the world and share experience and understanding with them.
The US Festival is held at the beautiful Kadampa temple in rural New York state in the Spring. This festival includes an empowerment with teachings, chanted prayers and meditations as well as time for retreat.
The Northeast Dharma Celebration will be the Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Manjushri with Kadam Morten Eastern US National Spiritual Director April 28 – 30. More details coming soon.
