The International Fall Festival 2021 will be held October 22-28. The empowerment, teachings, meditations and retreats will take place at the Temple for World Peace at Manjushri KMC in the UK and will be streamed to time zones around the world.
At the Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, Spiritual Director of NKT, will grant the empowerment of Buddha Green Tara and give teachings on The Path to Heaven, the transference of consciousness (powa) practice of Arya Tara.
These teachings are open to everyone from complete beginners to those with previous experience.
Kadampa Buddhists have a special relationship with Arya Tara because she promised Atisha she would protect his followers in the future. How fortunate therefore to receive the blessings of Tara directly from the Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition.
The practice of transference of consciousness of Arya Tara is a special practice taught by Buddha. Based on self-generation as Tara, we train in special meditations to transfer our consciousness to the heart of Guru Tara. With faith and training we can go to Tara’s Pure Land at the time of death using this profound practice.
