About this special event:

For thousands of years Buddha’s teachings have touched the hearts of many, transforming their life into one of great meaning and benefit. His teachings are universally applicable and everybody everywhere can benefit from adopting aspects of the Buddhist way of life, such as compassion and non-harmfulness, to solve their daily problems, improve family relationships and move towards a higher purpose.

On this special day course English Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Gakyi will lead us through guided meditations to receive the blessing and empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and explain how to use these blessings together with Buddha’s teachings and the help of spiritual friends to solve our human problems, transform our life and learn how to benefit others.

In the afternoon, Gen Gakyi will also give an explanation of the Liberating Prayer composed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This much loved prayer is recited before all teachings in Kadampa temples and centres throughout the world.

You are welcome to join us for as much or as little of the day as you wish. You do not have to have any previous knowledge or experience of Buddhism or meditation to enjoy and benefit from this special event.
