An International Festival of Modern Buddhism

UK Spring Bank Holiday Weekend 2017

Everyone is welcome to the NKT-IKBU International Spring Festival 2017.

Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and Teachings on Loving Kindness

with Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

May 26 – 31, 2017

At Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, UK

At this Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa will explain how we can develop and maintain a good heart through the practice of loving kindness

If we rely upon Buddha Maitreya with faith, we will receive his special care in this and all future lives. He will bestow upon us all the realizations of Kadam Lamrim, and especially the realization of loving kindness.

Inaugurated by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in 1995, the International Spring Festival is a special opportunity to experience Modern Buddhism in action at an international level.

Modern Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings designed especially for the people of the modern world. It is a practical way of life based on wisdom and compassion that is open to everyone regardless of age, race, gender or faith. Nowhere is this more evident than at the International Festivals.

Come together with like-minded people from over 40 countries, and experience a truly inspiring and meaningful holiday.

The Meaning of I with Kelsang Lamchen ~ Saturday April 22                                

Who do you think you are? This question is of great relevance to how we relate to ourself, other beings and the other phenomena in our world, and these relationships determine our actions and experiences. Using Buddha’s wisdom teachings we can understand how our own perfect liberation and enlightenment is not only within our reach but also much easier than trying to find happiness and freedom while remaining with our deluded views.

Mindfulness ~ Saturday 6 May, 10.30 – 1.30

The busyness and difficulties of daily life often leave us with an uncontrolled and agitated mind. By training in mindfulness, we gain control of our mind and we are able to stay focused, moment by moment on what is constructive and meaningful. We shall experience deep inner peace and be able to deal with all life’s difficulties with a positive attitude.
