Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, UK

NKT – IKBU International Summer Festival 2014

Requirement: Open to public
Date: July 25th, 2014 to August 9th, 2014

Week 1: Conquering Adversity – The Power of Kadam Lamrim
with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

We all experience problems and adversity. Usually these make us feel frustrated or despondent, but through the power of Kadam Lamrim we can learn to confront them with a happy mind and transform them into positive experiences.

On this course, Gen-la Kunsang will teach practical scientific methods based on meditation and other practices to conquer adverse situations and use them to advance on the spiritual path. Through these methods we can become completely free from problems and experience only happiness.

Week 2 Buddha Avalokiteshvara Empowerment and Teachings on Powa
with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

One of the most compassionate acts we can do is to help others at the time of death. At death our mind separates permanently from our body of this life; but although our body dies, our mind never dies – it simply goes to another life.

On this course, Gen-la Dekyong will first grant the empowerment of the Compassion Buddha, Avalokiteshvara, and then teach transference of consciousness (powa) whereby with the blessings of Buddha Avalokiteshvara we can help the recently deceased, the dying and ourself to go to a Pure Land where there is only peace and happiness.

  1. Dear administration,
    Thank you for sharing! I will send to my friend who stay in different which I think they needed. It’s seem like very interesting and exciting program, good for us to participate. Appreciated it very much!

  2. If the CTA had done even half of what the current Dorje Shugden dharma centres are doing to promoting dharma and Buddhism. Tibet would not be in this state at all.

    Tibetans in exile will not be in a fix as they are now.

  3. Virtuous activities around the world in summer, we see Vajrayogini retreat at Trijang Buddhist Institute (TBI) from June 28th to July 13th, 2014. Here we see pictures of Fire Puja Offering on the the ground of TBI after the completion of the retreat.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
