Northeast Dharma Celebration

Abiding in a Pure Land: Avalokiteshvara Empowerment and Teachings on Training in the Three Recognitions

Join hundreds of practitioners from around the Northeast at Kadampa Meditation Center New York and online for the annual Northeast Dharma Celebration.

You can change your world simply by changing your mind. This profound truth discovered in Buddhist teachings is life-changing. At the NEDC this year, Kadam Morten Clausen, the Eastern US National Spiritual Director of the NKT-IKBU and Resident Teacher of KMC NYC, will give teachings on how to deepen our understanding of this insight. He will also show us how to practically apply it through the practice of the three recognitions, contained in Avalokiteshvara practice from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s book, The Mirror of Dharma with Additions.

Instead of assenting to the ordinary, mundane appearance of our life, we are empowered to transform our way of seeing ourselves, others, and the world around us. As a result of joyfully applying effort to this meditation practice throughout our life, our world will change around us until we perceive it as a pure land–a world of no suffering and problems!
