NKT-IKBU International Fall Festival
Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Avalokiteshvara
and Teachings on Universal Compassion
Friday 6 - Thursday 12 October


Universal Compassion with Gen-la Dekyong.

At this festival, Gen-la Dekyong will explain the essential practices of training the mind (Lojong) based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche's book Universal Compassion. The practices of training the mind are exceptionally powerful methods for overcoming our delusions, especially our self-cherishing, and for gaining deep realizations of conventional and ultimate bodhichitta. In this way, we can attain the real meaning of our human life - enlightenment.
