Empowerment of Prajnaparamita & Teachings on Emptiness
with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong
This year join hundreds of people from around the United States to receive the empowerment of Prajnaparamita, who is the manifestation of Buddha’s Perfection of Wisdom. By receiving her blessings in this empowerment, we can deepen our experience of ultimate truth and come closer to a lasting answer to all our problems.
Online & In-Person!
We are happy to announce that this year’s US Festival will be both online & in-person. We have limited availability to enjoy the Festival experience at the US World Peace Temple in New York. Those who cannot attend in person can join into the Festival online with hundreds of others from around the United States. No matter how you join, the US Festival is a blessed and meaningful experience for all!
