  • About This Event

    Following on from the International Spring Festival at Manjushri KMC, UK. Gen Samten Kelsang will guide a retreat based on the teachings and commentaries given. We will gain familiarity, through meditation and contemplation, of the profound practice of Buddha Vajrapani and how we can develop and extend our compassion to all living beings and draw closer to enlightenment ourself. This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen our understanding and insight.

    This retreat is open to everyone and is ideal for those looking for an inspiring, enjoyable, and practical explanation to Buddhist meditation and philosophy.
