The festival will be taught in clear and easy to understand English.

THE TEACHINGS
Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni & Teachings on How to Transform Your Life

We all have a limitless potential for the development of good qualities, peace of mind and happiness. During this special weekend event Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will share her deep experience of the instructions from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s highly acclaimed book How to Transform Your Life. The teachings in this book deeply resonate with modern people and offer practical and inspiring solutions to our daily problems.

During the weekend Gen-la Dekyong will also grant the Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism in this world. An Empowerment is a peaceful guided meditation through which we connect to an inspiring source of positive energy. Through receiving this empowerment and putting Buddhas advice into practice, we can awaken our potential to live with a truly compassionate, wise and joyful heart.
