The Heart Practice
Dorje Shugden Empowerment and Teachings on Lamrim
With Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, NKT-IKBU General Spiritual Director
The heart of Kadampa Buddhism is the practice of Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightement, which is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings that is easily integrated into modern daily life.
By relying on the Wisdom Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden we will quickly gain deep inner experience of Lamrim and transform our life into the very path to enlightenment.
Week 2: August 6 – 14
Awakening our Buddha Nature
Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini
with Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, NKT-IKBU Deputy Spiritual Director
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says, “The gateway through which we enter Tantra is receiving a Tantric empowerment. An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.”
The empowerments and teachings in Week 2 will open the door to Highest Yoga Tantra, the very essence of Kadampa Buddhism and the quick path to enlightenment.
Due to the unusual situation, the Summer Festival 2021 will be streamed online, including the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini.
The empowerments and teachings will also be streamed in several other time zones to give as many people as possible the opportunity to join. Live translation will be available in several languages. More details on the format of the Festival will be available soon.
In-person attendance (if permitted to go ahead) will have very limited numbers and will be determined by the UK Government restrictions.
