International Festivals & Celebrations of Modern Buddhism

Buddhism for the Modern World – An International Festival of Meditation, Teachings and Empowerments

Everyone is welcome to the NKT-IKBU International Summer Festival 2015 at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, UK.

Week 1 ~ July 24 – 29
Kadam Lamrim – The Treasure Vase of Kadam Dharma
with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

Week 2 ~ July 30 – August 8
Heruka Body Mandala & Vajrayogini Empowerments with Highest Yoga Tantra Commentary with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

Enjoy a summer holiday with a difference. Spend some inspiring time in the English Lake District with people from all over the world developing inner peace through the practices of modern Buddhism.

Come away refreshed, invigorated and inspired – equipped with the essential tools to transform your everyday life into a meaningful spiritual path that brings immense benefit to both yourself and those with whom you live and work.

You can attend either week of the Festival or both together – or come for just a few days.
Both weeks are open to everyone and suitable for all levels.

If you have not been to a Summer Festival before, Week 1 might be a good place to start.

For those receiving the Heruka Body Mandala and Vajrayogini Empowerments in Week 2, it is necessary to attend all 3 days of Empowerments. Those attending the commentary, must have received the Empowerment.

“A very special meaningful holiday learning how to find happiness from within your own mind through concentrating on spiritual practice.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
