Living as a Faithful Modern Kadampa Disciple

with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

Our deep yearning to draw close to our Spiritual Guide leads us into our heart, and to realize all the stages of the path of Sutra and Tantra through receiving our Guru’s powerful blessings.

This course is a special opportunity to receive commentary on the precious prayer Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples, and to engage in the first group retreat on mentally reciting Venerable Geshe-la’s name mantra from the heart while concentrating on its meaning.

Followed by a guided retreat with Kadam Bridget Heyes, UK & Dutch National Spiritual Director & Resident Teacher of Nagarjuna KMC, Kelmarsh – March 4 – 6
