The International Festivals
Every year the New Kadampa Tradition - International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organizes three International Festivals taught by senior Teachers. These Festivals provide a precious opportunity to study and practice the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the Founder of the NKT-IKBU.
The Festivals consist of teachings, empowerments, and meditations, and finish with short retreats. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of experience. They also provide an opportunity to meet and practice with like-minded people from all over the world. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energized.
Chicago Viewing Party
KMC Chicago is coordinating a Festival viewing party at our Oak Park center. Enjoy the festival teachings, meditations, and empowerments in a peaceful space, while in the spiritually invigorating company of others. Our viewing party will follow the festival schedule for the Central Time Zone (see the Summer Festival website for details). Festival registration is required, but there's no additional cost to take part in our viewing party. Be sure to register at the Festival website, and then RSVP for our watch party.
