The NKT-IKBU International Summer Festival 2021, July 30 - August 14 - two weeks of inspiring empowerments and teachings from the two most senior Teachers in NKT, with a short retreat in each week - a rare and precious opportunity to enjoy the essential practices of Modern Kadampa Buddhism wherever you are in the world.
Traveling the Path to Enlightenment
The heart of Kadampa Buddhism is the practice of Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightenment, which is a special presentation of Buddha's teachings that is easily integrated into modern daily life. If we meditate on these stages and put them into practice, we will have the opportunity to purify all our daily experience and turn them into the path to enlightenment.
KMCSF was the first Kadampa Center established in the USA since 1991. In our peaceful city sanctuary, Buddha's teachings are presented in an accessible manner that can easily be integrated into busy modern life. Our teachings are based on the books of the modern day meditation master and Buddhist teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. We now offer online streaming.
