Within the Asia Pacific region an annual Asian Festival is held. The Festival provides a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU).
This year the festival will be held in Singapore, and teachings will be given by Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, the General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU and Resident Teacher at Manjushri KMC, the mother centre of the NKT.
Gen-la Dekyong has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for thirty years, sincerely training under his guidance in all aspects of Kadam Dharma. She is recognized as a fully qualified Dharma Teacher of both Sutra and Tantra. Gen-la teaches at major events around the world, and over the years has touched the hearts of thousands of people whom she has inspired to integrate Buddha’s teachings into their modern daily lives.
For Kadampa practitioners, her good heart, powerful teachings and sincere, inspiring example are unequalled.
This is a four day event that offers 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.
