Jan 2-30th | Drawing closer to the Guru


Our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Jigme, is a senior meditation teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition.

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.

Drawing closer to the Guru

Special Close Retreat ~ collecting 100,000 Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka mantras

January 2nd-30th 2023

at Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre, Brighton UK
Join this special close retreat at Bodhisattva KMC, drawing closer to our Spiritual Guide Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka, following Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s oral instructions, transmitted by Gen la Dekyong at the International NKT Spring Festival 2022 in Málaga. Together in this blessed space of Bodhisattva KMC, we will draw closer and closer to our Root Guru, and create very powerful actions that will cause Kadam Dharma to flourish in our hearts and throughout the world. There is no better offering to repay our Guru’s kindness.
The retreat will not be guided so retreaters will need to have understood the practice in advance in order to engage in the retreat.  It begins with an Introduction by Gen Jigme at 7pm on Monday 2nd January 2023, and the Meditation Room will be available for retreaters to complete the 100,000 mantras until the evening of Monday 30th January.  Outdoor space will be available to collect the 10,000 Vajradaka burning offering mantras required to complete the retreat.
An explanatory talk will be given by Gen Jigme at 5pm on Sunday 20th November; please try to attend if you are interested in joining this retreat.
