Every year NKT-IKBU organises a world wide programme of special courses on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddhaâs teachings (Dharma) to modern living. Â The programme includesÂ International Festivals,Â National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations.
These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practice the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of NKT.
The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference â a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.
