http://kadampafestivals.org/ Every year the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organises a world wide programme of special courses on Buddhism and meditationthat explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living.  The programme includes International Festivals, National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations. These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught byVenerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the NKT. The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.

Holiday Peace Service December 18th

About the course:
In the holiday season we have time to see family and friends, and have the opportunity to show our love and gratitude. It can, however, also be a time of stress and unrealistic expectations. Gen Norden will pass along some basic Buddhist teachings on patience, on the practice of loving kindness, and on how to keep a positive and balanced mind through the holiday season. Light a candle to make a prayer for peace. This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Norden.
Everyone is welcome. Family friendly – kids most welcome. Free.

This course takes place at: Kadampa Meditation Center -The Hamptons
