Asian Festival with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang, National Spiritual Director of Austria, Switzerland, Italy and South Africa
Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and Teachings on The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness
15 – 18 December 2023
Silvermine Bay Camp, Mui Wo, Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Welcome to the Asian Festival, a spiritual holiday during which we have a wonderful opportunity to receive practical and inspiring teachings on Modern Buddhism and to enjoy guided meditations in the company of people from throughout Asia.

At this special event Gen-la Kunsang, Resident Teacher of Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre in the UK and National Spiritual Director of Austria, Switzerland, Italy and South Africa, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya who is the embodiment of the loving kindness of all the Buddhas. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we can draw closer to Buddha Maitreya, receive his powerful and inspiring blessings, and deepen our experience of loving kindness.

When we have a strong loving mind, we naturally love and cherish others in our family, workplace and society. Our whole experience of the world changes. Others feel this change and respond to it. We can see for ourselves a world at peace in which everyone loves and cherishes each other is possible.

“A very special meaningful holiday learning how to find happiness from within your own mind through concentrating on spiritual practice.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
