Event description

Description

Open to everyone, the Canadian National Festival is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a spiritual break with like-minded people from across Canada. During this special weekend Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will grant the blessing empowerment of the wisdom Buddha, Je Tsongkhapa, connecting us to a powerful source of wisdom that will sustain us throughout our spiritual life.

During this national Kadampa gathering, Gen-la Dekyong will give teachings on the Prayer of the Stages of the Path by Je Tsongkhapa. Through this we can develop a pure, happy mind, solve our own and others’ problems, and eventually attain the lasting happiness of full enlightenment.
