About the Retreat

June 4 is Dharmachakra Day on which we celebrate Buddha’s first teaching in this world – the first Turning of the Wheel of Dharma. It is also the birthday of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the Founder of NKT.

Teachings for daily life
For modern people the teachings of Buddha are brought to us by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, who presents them in such a way they are easy to understand and integrate into our daily life. See the video below for a brief excerpt  from one of Venerable Geshe-la’s teachings.

A global Kadampa family
Venerable Geshe-la has touched the hearts of thousands of people around the world, all of whom will celebrate this day with a profound gratitude.

A special one-day retreat
To express our faith and gratitude, on Saturday 1 June we will hold a special one-day unguided retreat during which we recite special prayers and collect Venerable Geshe-la’s name mantra.
