Weekend course with Gen-la Kheynrab

Welcome to Your Pure Land!

Special Introductory teaching retreat on Buddhist Tantra with Gen la Kelsang Khyenrab

Enjoy the blissful taste and transformative power of Tantra in meditations and talks on this very profound and liberating inner path to complete enlightenment. We will explore the essential meanings of the entire Tantric path for both absolute beginners and those with experience drawn from the recorded authentic experiences of the great Tantric master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

In particular this will be a meaningful preparation for those about to receive empowerments and teachings at the NKT Fall Festival in Brazil, from Gen la Kelsang Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT IKBU, following the teachings of Kadampa master of modern Buddhism, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This course is an ideal preparation for the NKT International Fall Festival 2024.

To get the greatest benefit from this course it is strongly recommended that you attend all the classes and meditations - note that there are no specific commitments for attending the course - everybody is welcome.
