About the Event

The annual Northwest Dharma Celebration is a wonderful opportunity for people throughout the region to gather together to receive practical, inspiring teachings and meet spiritual friends. Whether new to Buddhism or an experienced practitioner, everyone is welcome at this joyous and meaningful event.

The blessing empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism in this world, will be granted by Gen Rigpa. Buddha Shakyamuni's teachings and example inspire the realization of our own potential and guide us toward freedom from ordinary limitations and fear. By making a special connection with Buddha Shakyamuni, we can discover a profound inner wisdom that swiftly leads to deep and lasting happiness. Gen Rigpa will also give teachings and commentary to The Liberating Prayer, opening the door to a deeper understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a modern day Buddhist practitioner.



About the Teacher

We are delighted to welcome Gen Kelsang Rigpa to the Pacific Northwest. Gen Rigpa is the Western US Spiritual Director for the NKT-IKBU and Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood. He is an American Buddhist monk and close disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. His heartfelt and practical teachings are presented with warmth and humor, making them accessible to everyone.
