International Spring Festival: Becoming a good-natured person with a good heart

Spring Bank Holiday weekend in Cumbria

An International Festival of Modern Buddhism

Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and Teachings on Loving Kindness

At this Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa will explain how we can develop and maintain a good heart through the practice of loving kindness If we rely upon Buddha Maitreya with faith, we will receive his special care in this and all future lives. He will bestow upon us all the realizations of Kadam Lamrim, and especially the realization of loving kindness. Inaugurated by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in 1995, the International Spring Festival is a special opportunity to experience Modern Buddhism in action at an international level. Modern Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha's teachings designed especially for the people of the modern world. It is a practical way of life based on wisdom and compassion that is open to everyone regardless of age, race, gender or faith. Nowhere is this more evident than at the International Festivals.
