Ever wonder about the true nature of reality? Please join us for a weekend retreat with teachings based on Buddha Shakyamuni’s well known and profound wisdom teachings from the Heart Sutra.

Gen Kelsang Chokyan will give accessible teachings and guide meditations based on the Projnaparamita empowerment and teachings given at the Kadampa Spring Festival in the UK. Through training in ultimate truth emptiness, we can learn how to solve our daily problems and find inner peace and happiness regardless of external conditions.


Gen Kelsang Chokyan is the Resident Teacher at KMC Tampa Bay. Chokyan is a western Buddhist monk ordained in the New Kadampa Tradition and a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, founder of the NKT. A great example of how to practice Kadampa Buddhism in the modern world, Gen Chokyan shows us how to find peace and happiness in our daily lives.

Gen Chokyan will also be giving a public talk at KMC San Francisco on Tuesday, June 5.
