In this class open to everyone, Kadam Kyle will give teachings on how to integrate our reliance on our spiritual guide into our daily experiences and thus make our life greatly meaningful.
Saturday, June 4th: Offering of Our Faith Retreat
Every day we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe-la, our Root Guru and Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition, but on this auspicious day, with minds of rejoicing and gratitude, we will offer him our faith through using the special prayer Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples and collecting our Guru’s name mantra in a one-day retreat.
