A special day of retreat ~ offering our faith
On June 4, Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day, we celebrate the 90th birthday of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

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.

There will be two sessions of retreat using the sadhana The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra and the special request prayer. In the evening, the retreat will conclude with Offering to the Spiritual Guide for long life. Everyone is welcome to take part.

9:30AM-11AM - Session 1
3PM-4:30PM - Session 2
5:30PM-7:30PM - Offering to the Spiritual Guide Puja
