A holiday out of the ordinary.

Spend time with thousands of peaceful and loving people and understand how world peace can actually be achieved if we are peaceful and try to cherish each other. 
Every year thousands of Kadampa Buddhists gather from all over the world to focus their minds in positive ways and to energise and inpsire their daily meditation practice. Why not join this wonderful international family gathering. Everyone welcome, bring your family and friends. 
You are sure to leave with a deep inner peace, loads of friends and a meaningful experience that will continue to shape the rest of your life in a positive way. 

What better place to be on holiday than at a Buddhist festival where everybody try to be nice to you and talk to you, you can sit out, eat lovely food and enjoy tea and cakes in the breaks between extraordinary teachings and meditations.

WITHOUT IMPROVING OUR MIND
THERE IS NO WAY TO SOLVE OUR HUMAN PROBLEMS.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organises a world wide programme of special courses on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living.  The programme includes International Festivals, National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations.

These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught byVenerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the NKT.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – 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.
