Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Spiritual Guide and Founder of Modern Kadampa Buddhism

A Perfect Design

There is a beautiful rhythm to International Festivals. First, we hear the teachings and every day we meditate on their meaning. Then, while the teachings are fresh in our mind we engage in retreat.

This design came from the kindness of Venerable Geshe-la as a method to guide us to a deeper experience of Dharma.

My Wish...

‘We have enjoyed the Summer Festival 2009; this is wonderful, but please keep the intention in your heart to enjoy the Summer Festival 2010, 2011, 2013 until 2099. This is my wish.

Why I have this wish is because it will give you immense meaning in this life and in future lives. This is a wonderful spiritual holiday.’

~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
