PLEASE NOTE: Everyone is welcome to attend this retreat but the prayers and reciting of mantras may suit more experienced Kadampa practitioners than those with little or no experience.

The first Saturday in April is set aside to commemorate the founding of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKTIKBU) by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in 1991.

The occasion is marked by special events and by pujas and dedications at Kadampa centres worldwide.

Prayers are made for the flourishing of Kadam Dharma throughout the world so that all living beings might quickly find permanent inner peace.

Above all, we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in founding the New Kadampa Tradition.

At Jampa Ling KBC, we will be engaging in a special day retreat reciting Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s name mantra and then Wishfulfilling Jewel with Tsog in the evening.

You are welcome to attend as many sessions as you are able.

This retreat will be live-streamed for monthly subscribers.

“In these degenerate times you cherish pure Buddhadharma,

You show us how to begin, make progress in and complete our practice of Dharma,

Through which we will attain supreme permanent liberation and happiness,

And yet due to the strength of our worldly concerns we are unable to repay your kindness;

O Please be patient with us.
