In additional to these special events in and around Georgia, Kadampa Buddhist Tradition also hosts several national and international celebrations and festivals…

  • Regional Dharma Celebrations

     
    There are also regional Dharma Celebrations given by the National Spiritual Directors. In regional Dharma Celebrations, several Dharma Centers in a specific geographic region of the country join forces to celebrate Dharma through Dharma teaching, guidance in meditation, and fellowship amongst the region’s dharma practitioners.
