The Essence of Buddha’s Teachings with Gen Tenzin, August 18-20

This weekend retreat follows the blessing empowerment and teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni given at the International Summer Festival at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Center and will offer us an opportunity to meditate deeply on the very essence of Buddha’s teachings. Through contemplating the precious instructions from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book How to Transform Your Life, and practicing these instructions in our daily lives, we can discover for ourselves how Buddha’s timeless wisdom gently guides us to a last sense of inner peace, happiness and service to others. We are delighted to welcome Gen Kelsang Tenzin, the Resident Teacher of KMC Philadelphia, to teach this special event.
