The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra
The 2019 NKT-IKBU International Summer Festival is a festival of modern Buddhist teachings, meditations and blessing empowerments.
It is open to anyone who wishes to learn how to use the scientific methods of modern Buddhism to solve their daily life problems, enjoy lasting inner peace, and eventually attain the supreme happiness of full enlightenment.
At this Festival you will enjoy teachings and meditations on a core practice of modern Kadampa Buddhism - The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra.
You will also receive the blessing empowerments of Je Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden.
Week 1 : Abiding In The Heart with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU
Empowerment of Je Tsongkapa
In the first week, Gen-la Dekyong will give essential advice on how to prepare the mind for Mahamudra meditation and how to gather our inner winds into the central channel at the heart channel wheel. This teaching is derived from the instructions of the Ganden Oral Lineage.
The first week's teachings will be preceded by the blessing empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa, the source of these instructions.
Week 2 : Infinite Bliss with Gen-la Kelsang Jampa Deputy Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU
Empowerment of the Wisdom Protector Dorje Shugden
In the second week, Gen-la Jampa will give essential advice on how to accomplish the actual Mahamudra, the union of great bliss and emptiness, following the instructions of the Ganden Oral Lineage.
The second week's teachings will be preceded by the empowerment of the Wisdom Protector Dorje Shugden, the Protector of this uncommon lineage.
The teachings and empowerments will be given by two principal Teachers of NKT-IKBU - Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, the General Spiritual Director, and Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, the Deputy Spiritual Director.
It is a wonderful opportunity to receive teachings from these two great Teachers at the same Festival.
