The Empowerment of Medicine Buddha and Teachings from How to Solve Our Human Problems

Every year, our World Peace Temple in Glen Spey hosts the U.S. Festival.  This year’s ran from April 26 – May 1 and was well-attended by Kadampas from all over the country.

Gen-la Jampa, the Deputy Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition granted the empowerment of Medicine Buddha and gave teachings from Geshe Kelsang’s book How to Solve our Human Problems.  Through these blessings and teachings, we now have the opportunity to begin to heal our mental continuum, help others through engaging in healing actions and bring peace to our world.

As usual, staying for the entire festival provided the perfect way to disconnect from the demands of daily life and drop into the profound experience on offer. Here’s some of the highlights of the event…members of our New York City Sangha enjoying the Festival!
