Dharmachakra Day ~ Offering our Faith

Offering our Faith | a one-day retreat

June 4 is Dharmachakra Day on which we celebrate Buddha’s first teaching in this world – the first Turning of the Wheel of Dharma. It is also the birthday of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the Founder of New Kadampa Tradition. On this special day we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe-la, our Root Guru, and the immeasurable benefit he continues to bring to the people of this world.

At Madhyamaka KMC and Kadampa Centres around the world, with minds of rejoicing and gratitude, we 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.

Everyone is welcome.

There is no charge for this retreat, but please book if you would like to have lunch.
