Kadampa Festivals and Celebrations

Canadian National Festivals and Ontario Dharma Celebrations

These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the NKT.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.

Freedom from all Fear

Empowerment of Buddha White Tara and teachings on Faith

with Gen la Kelsang Khyenrab

At the annual Dharma Celebration, an opportunity for students of Ontario Centres to celebrate together, Gen-la Khyenrab will bestow the empowerment of Buddha White Tara. White Tara is a female enlightened being whose function is to bestow long life, good fortune and wisdom. The compassion of all the Buddhas appears in the form of Arya WhiteTara. 
If we rely upon her with faith she will protect us from heavy diseases such as cancer and she will protect us from the dangers of fire and many other fears and disasters. If we are wise we will wish to receive the blessings of this enlightened being in order to benefit ourself and others.  Gen la Khyenrab will give a commentary to the practice of White Tara and teachings on how to develop and maintain the three types of faith.
