Kadam Lamrim – the Complete Path to Enlightenment


Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong & Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

July 28 – August 12, 2023, at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, UK

In Week 1 of this special Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, Deputy Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, will teach the stages of Kadam Lamrim of Sutra. These practices are an essential foundation for receiving Highest Yoga Tantra teachings.

In Week 2, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, will teach the stages of Kadam Lamrim of Tantra by granting the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments and commentaries of Heruka Body Mandala and Vajrayogini.

Please note: for those unable to travel to the festival in person, there will be the chance to access the Festival teachings online (both the Lamrim teachings in Week 1 and the Highest Yoga Tantra teachings in Week 2). The HYT empowerments themselves will not be made available online. As such, only those who have received HYT empowerments in the past can access the Week 2 teachings online.

The Festival is open to everyone and suitable for all levels of experience.
