How does this fundraiser help to promote world peace?

We all have the power to change by understanding and transforming our mind.

What is our fundraising goal?

Our goal is to raise . . . well, our goal is to raise some funds and have some fun!

Journey alongside lay and ordained members of Kadampa Meditation Center Washington, their friends and family. This will be an opportunity to say “bon voyage” to Gen Khedrub, who leaves the next day for the annual International Teacher Training Program at Manjushri KMC.
