The festival was a wonderful opportunity to receive teachings and meet Kadampa Buddhist practitioners from across Canada in our own backyard. Over the last week, we had a public talk by Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab at the Science Centre and a weekend of events, including the blessing empowerment of Buddha Amitayus and a short retreat right by the Don Valley. What good fortune for those able to attend. Here’s some photos from this unique and inspiring festival click here
