An Explanation of the Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism


Our Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre is Gen Kelsang Jigme.

Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.

Heart Jewel – Day Course

An Explanation of the Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism

with Gen Kelsang Jigme

Day Course November 18

Kadampa Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s Mahayana teachings that makes the path to enlightenment accessible to the modern world and explains clearly how to transform our lives into the spiritual path.

Gen Jigme will explain the two essential practises of Heart Jewel, the first being a special meditation practise in conjunction with Je Tsongkhapa, through which we can receive blessings and gain the realizations of the path to enlightenment. The second is meditation on the Buddha of Wisdom in the aspect of a Dharma Protector, wherby we gain the necessary internal strength to overcome all obstacles to our spiritual practice.
