July 26 - August 10

International Kadampa Summer Festival 2024

Prajnaparamita Empowerment and Teachings on the Heart Sutra, and Commentary to Blissful Path and the Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability

Offered in-person and online (see festival site for details)

with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong and Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

See booking page for pricing details

In October 2013 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche gave his last public teachings in Portugal.

During these teachings Geshe-la granted the empowerment of Great Mother Prajnaparamita, taught the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (Heart Sutra), which contains the heart essence of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom teachings, and gave commentaries to The Blissful Path, the condensed self-generation sadhana practice of Buddha Vajrayogini and to The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability, the special instruction of how to reach the Pure Land of Vajrayogini with our present human body. During this Festival, the teachings will be revisited by Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong and Gen-la Kelsang Jampa. By helping us to take these teachings deep into our hearts, we can attain deep experience of them, thus transforming our lives and drawing us closer to attaining full enlightenment.
