Offering our Faith
A celebration of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
Join Kadampa practitioners around the world for a special day when we celebrate our Spiritual Guide, the Founder of our Centre and of the New Kadampa Tradition, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
June 4th is Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day, the anniversary of Buddha’s first teaching in this world. We are celebrating with this retreat on June 3, ad a Walk for World Peace on June 4.
We remember every day the great kindness of Ven Geshe-la, but on this auspicious day, with minds of rejoicing and gratitude, we will offer him our faith through using the special prayer Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples and collecting our Guru’s name mantra in a one day retreat.
The sessions will be unguided except for a short explanation at the beginning of the first session.
~ The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra.
~ Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples.
In each session there will be a half hour of silence to recite Venerable Geshe-la’s name mantra.
~ Offering to the Spiritual Guide prayers
