Celebrating the 90th anniversary of our precious Spiritual Guide

A special day of retreat

On June 4, Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day, we celebrate the 90th birthday of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Every day we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe-la, our Root Guru and Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition.

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.

Everyone is welcome to take part.

Gen Sanden will give a brief introduction the previous evening.

In the evening, the retreat will conclude with Offering to the Spiritual Guide for long life.
