Canadian Dharma Celebration
Canadian Dharma Festival: An Ocean of Compassion
June 16-20 with Gen Kelsang Samten
Imagine a world where everyone has a sincere desire to help and protect others from suffering. Since we all have the potential within us to develop this universal compassion, which is our Buddha seed, this goal is definitely possible. Growing our compassion and wisdom, and helping others whenever possible is the true meaning of human life.
During this unique national event, we will have the opportunity to awaken our pure Buddha nature. Gen Kelsang Samten, Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center New York, will grant the blessing empowerment of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, and teach us how to become closer to this Buddha in our daily lives, so that we can eventually develop the same good qualities.
Gen Samten will teach us how we can increase our love, compassion and bodhichitta, and in particular, how we can take concrete actions to benefit others by practising the eleven main ways of helping others that were presented by Arya Asanga. By practising these methods, our compassion will continually grow until it becomes an ocean of compassion, the universal compassion of a fully enlightened being, a Buddha.
This event will take place at Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada in Toronto.
