The Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and Commentary to Request to the Lord of All Lineages prayer.

Watch a special video about the 2021 Festivals here.

There are two things that our world badly needs right now:

Powerful blessings that will lift our minds and give us a renewed sense of purpose

An authentic spiritual path that leads us out of misery and pain to a lasting state of happiness – a path that is easy to understand and follow in this modern world

We will find both at the 2021 International Kadampa Spring Festival.

  1. Realizing our full potential
    At the Festival Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, which will bless our body, speech and mind. This empowerment will pacify our minds and empower us to realize our full potential.
  2. A spiritual path for the modern world

During the Festival, Gen-la will give teachings on the sublime prayer, Request to the Lord of all Lineages.

This prayer includes all the essential stages of the path to enlightenment: Lamrim, Lojong, Generation stage and Completion stage. Gen-la will give clear explanations of these practices and show how we can integrate them into our everyday life.

As Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says, “There is no greater meaning than engaging in this practice.”

The Teacher at the Spring Festival will be Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, a principal disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche who holds the lineage and blessings of his teachings. Gen-la is a retired General Spiritual Director who is now the National Spiritual Director for Canada and Resident Teacher at KMC Canada. He teaches widely at International and National Kadampa Festivals. Gen-la also teaches the Intensive Teacher Training Programme at Manjushri KMC each year, and this year is conducting a six-month intensive for 40 fortunate trainee Teachers.
