International Fall Festival Festival

The International Fall Festival 2022 will be held at KMC New York October 14-20. As this Festival takes place in a different country each year, it is a rare a precious opportunity to have it within driving distance. Everyone is welcome.

Kadampa Meditation Center New York is located in the Sullivan Catskills in New York. All of the Festival sessions are held in the US World Peace Temple.

  • Take a meaningful vacation in the Catskills along the Delaware River
  • Receive live teachings and meditate in the blessed environment of the World Peace Temple
  • Connect with other spiritual practitioners in-person
  • Enjoy 82 acres of woodlands, nature trails, ponds, and streams at KMC New York

During Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Green Tara and give special teachings on the sublime twenty-one homages based on a transmission she received directly from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Green Tara is a female enlightened being, the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, who protects living beings from outer and inner obstacles and guides them to the attainment of all the stages of the path to enlightenment.

Drawing closer
In relying on Mother Tara and requesting her help, we frequently recite twenty-one special verses of praise, or homage. These precious words are Buddha’s own speech and are considered to be actual Sutra.

At the Fall Festival, Gen-la will give an explanation of these special verses based on the transmission she received from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Through understanding the meaning of these verses we will draw closer to the twenty-one emanations of Tara and constantly receive special blessings and protection.
