Celebration Teachers

Gen Rigpa will grant the empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa and give teachings on the profound path of Kadam Lamrim. Through receiving the empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa, we will make a special connection to the enlightened beings, the Buddhas, and the seeds of spiritual attainments will be sown in our heart. By practicing the extraordinarily clear teachings of Kadam Lamrim with the inspiration and guidance of Je Tsongkhapa we awaken within our heart the qualities of wisdom, compassion, and spiritual strength that he embodies.

Kadam Rebecca Gauthier is the Resident Teacher of Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center in Westlake Village. She has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s guidance for over twenty years. Through her kindness, humility and deep understanding of Buddha’s teachings, Kadam Rebecca provides an inspiring example of a contemporary Buddhist practitioner we can follow. Kadam Rebecca will be giving the Introductory Talk on Friday evening.

Kadam Angie Kane has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for over 15 years. She is the Resident Teacher of Prajnaparamita Kadampa Buddhist Center in Santa Monica and is a powerful and inspiring teacher well-loved for her clear teachings, compassion and wisdom.
