Spring Festival at KMC Victoria - Kadampa Meditation Centre Victoria

SPRING FESTIVAL 2024

Accomplishing the Great Wisdom Protection

Dorje Shugden Empowerment and teachings on the Extensive Protector Puja with Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector emanation of the Wisdom Buddha who averts obstacles to our spiritual practice and gathers necessary conditions for our attaining spiritual realizations.

During this Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa will grant the Blessing Empowerment of Dorje Shugden.

Then, based on instructions received from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, he will teach on the Melodious Drum practice, the ‘Fulfilling and Restoring Ritual’, which is usually performed monthly in Kadampa centers.

THE NEW KADAMPA TRADITION on VANCOUVER ISLAND

At the heart of the New Kadampa Tradition is the practice of Kadampa Buddhism, a lineage which started with Buddha himself and then traveled through India and into Tibet. The lineage came to the West in 1977 with the arrival of Buddhist Master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Geshe Kelsang has been a key figure in the flourishing of Dharma throughout the world. He founded The New Kadampa Tradition in 1991 and subsequently opened 1,400 centers and branches worldwide, composed 24 books which have been translated into many languages, built World Peace Temples in various countries, and established study and meditation programs geared towards modern people.
