Everyone is welcome
The California Dharma Celebration (CADC) is an opportunity for people from California and surrounding states to gather in the stunning new World Peace Temple, Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood, for a special weekend of empowerment, teachings, meditation, and the good company of spiritual friends.
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.
