Prajnaparamita Empowerment and Teachings on the Heart Sutra, and Commentary to Blissful Path and The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability

JUL 26 - AUG 10

Profound Teachings from Buddha's Heart

Portugal Festival 2013 Revisited

In October 2013 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche gave his last public teachings in Portugal.

During these teachings Geshe-la granted the empowerment of Great Mother Prajnaparamita, taught the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (Heart Sutra), which contains the heart essence of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom teachings, and gave commentaries to The Blissful Path, the condensed self-generation sadhana practice of Buddha Vajrayogini and to The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability, the special instruction of how to reach the Pure Land of Vajrayogini with our present human body.

During the teachings he also shared priceless heart advice and encouragement such as how to control our distractions so that our meditations will be effective.

During Summer Festival 2024 with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong and Gen-la Kelsang Jampa we will revisit these precious teachings and we will receive additional priceless jewels that Venerable Geshe-la has shared personally since then. Giving us the great opportunity to connect deeply to our precious Root Guru, enabling his teachings to deeply touch our hearts and for us to gain practical experience of them. In this way we will enrich our spiritual lives and draw closer to attaining full enlightenment so that we can benefit all living beings.

The Festival will take place in the blessed Temple for World Peace set in the holy environment of Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, the Mother Centre of Kadampa Buddhism, which is located in Ulverston in the beautiful Lake District, UK. It is open to everyone and suitable for all levels of experience.
