The dream-like appearance of Summer Festival 2017 is dissolving away.
Today as the Festival comes to a close the Kadampa family will watch the inspiring and moving movie of the Life of Buddha.

Followed by some special concluding advice from Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong on how to take the essence of our experience at the Summer Festival into our daily lives.


But as one Festival dream fades, others arise. Hundreds of people will now be engaging in post-festival retreats in Retreat Centres and KMC’s around the world. People leave taking both the feeling and the imprint of the Festival with them. The feeling we can share with others. The imprint we can know will ripen in wonderful ways for us in the future. Certainly we have created the cause to have many more Festivals with everyone cherishing one another arising throughout the world.

Everywhere now people are hugging goodbye. It won’t be long till we see each other again in the Festival dream arising in Germany at Tharpaland International Retreat Centre.

Thank you Venerable Geshe-la for this extraordinary Festival!
