Welsh Dharma Celebration

Welsh Dharma Celebration


The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of Loving Kindness and Teachings on Relying on Loving Kindness
with UK National Spiritual Director Kadam Bridget Heyes

‘Loving kindness is the very essence of Kadam Dharma and a precious method to attain enlightenment. We will be born as Buddha through loving kindness for all living beings. In reality, loving kindness gives you everything.’ – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

During the Welsh Dharma Celebration 2021 hosted by KMC Wales we have the chance to receive the blessing empowerment of the Buddha of Loving Kindness, Buddha Maitreya. Through receiving Maitreya’s powerful blessings, we can develop the most profoundly loving heart. Kadam Bridget will also give teachings on how we can develop a deep wealth of loving kindness that functions as a refuge for both ourself and others. In these uncertain times, we can rely on the mind of loving kindness to protect and guide us, and to give us the ability to free all living beings from suffering. 

This event is suitable for everyone, and everybody is welcome.
