Full details:

Open to everyone, the annual Western Canada Dharma Celebration is a special weekend event which draws people from throughout the region to enjoy a spiritual break and receive empowerment and teachings. For those new to Buddhism, the teachings and meditations at the celebration will provide a deeper insight into the meaning and practical application of Buddha’s teachings.

During the celebration Gen-la Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of wisdom Buddha Manjushri. This empowerment is a blissful guided meditation that awakens our potential for wisdom, and ultimate happiness. By receiving this empowerment, we make a strong connection with Buddha Manjushri, and his blessings will cause our wisdom to quickly increase. Gen-la will then give teachings on Buddha’s profound wisdom of ultimate truth - emptiness which reveal the dreamlike nature of all things, the relationship between our mind and our world and how we can free ourself and others from all our problems and find lasting inner peace and joy.  Everyone is welcome



Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab is the National Spiritual Director for Canada and a retired General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT- IKBU). Gen-la is deeply respected throughout the world for his powerful teachings and experience of unifying Buddha’s teachings with his busy daily life. The Friday introduction and morning meditations will be taught by other senior teachers.
