First Festival?


The annual US Festival is very accessible for first-timers.

The teachings can be heard and understood at many levels, so they can appeal to a great variety of people regardless of their experience. Whether you’re relatively new, or an absolute beginner, the festival is designed to touch your heart.


The festival takes place at one of two Kadampa World Peace Temples in the U.S.: in upstate New York, and in northern Arizona near the Grand Canyon. Both temples offer the opportunity to retreat from busy daily life, and the perfect peaceful conditions to deeply contemplate Buddha's profound insights.
