International Kadampa Festivals are special courses inspired by the Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT), Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Each year, senior teachers give teachings and empowerments at the International Festivals, which are attended by thousands of people from all over the world.
The Festivals include teachings, empowerments, reviews, meditations, chanted prayers & offering ceremonies, and retreats to consolidate and deepen your understanding and experience.
Open to everyone, these Festivals and Celebrations are a wonderful opportunity to meet with Buddhist practitioners from all over the world and share experience and understanding with them
There are three annual International Festivals each year:
- The Spring Festival – held at Manjushri KMC in UK
- The Summer Festival – held at Manjushri KMC in UK
- The Fall Festival – held at various locations outside the UK
