Offering our Faith Retreat - Celebrating Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

FULLARTON • SATURDAY 4 JUN • 9AM-12.30PM

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.
 

Each session lasts for one and a half hours and consists of chanted prayers sung in English and silent mantra recitation. You are welcome to come to any or both the sessions. Please make sure you arrive at least 5 minutes before your first session to familiarise yourself with the session structure.
