The Mirror of Dharma: A Special Retreat

  • Kadampa Meditation Center Texas 1875 Laws Street Dallas, TX 75202 United States (map)

During this special retreat, we have a perfect opportunity to look into the mirror of Dharma, or Buddha’s wise teachings, to improve our inner qualities and see the true meaning of human life. By taking the time out for reflection and meditative contemplation we can gain special knowledge about our self, our mind, and our life. This wisdom will bring clarity about how we live and bring a true peace, happiness, and fulfillment for ourself and those around us.


Guest Teacher Gen Kelsang Norden, Resident Teacher at KMC Austin, will guide this retreat based on teachings from the book The Mirror of Dharma given at the International Kadampa Fall Festival held at the International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon earlier in the month.

Join us to take some time out and gain meaningful perspective on daily life.

Gen Kelsang Norden, a senior ordained teacher, was requested by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche to teach modern Buddhism at the Kadampa Meditation Centers in Austin and in Houston. Ordained as a Buddhist nun in 1994, she has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in the US and the UK for over 25 years. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy the precious Dharma of Modern Buddhism with such an experienced practitioner.
