Festivals & Celebrations

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organises a worldwide program of special courses on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living.  The program includes International Festivals, National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations.

These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practice the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the NKT.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks. Normally, these events would be held in various locations and centers around the world. Due to unusual circumstances, all Festivals will be held online this year. This provides a wonderful opportunity for anyone to join these meaningful events.
