Samudra Buddhist Centre, Buxton
NKT-IKBU Summer Festival
The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra - The Very Essence of Buddha's Teachings of Sutra and Tantra
Friday 22 July - Saturday 6 August 2016


The oral instructions of Mahamudra are the heart practice of Kadam Dharma. They include special methods according to Highest Yoga Tantra that lead to the accomplishment of the union of great bliss and emptiness and eventually to the union of Buddhahood, full enlightenment. By following these blessed instructions sincerely it is possible to attain enlightenment in one short life.

During the Summer Festival Gen-la Dekyong and Gen-la Khyenrab will explain this practice based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche's book The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra, The Very Essence of Buddha's Teachings of Sutra and Tantra.
