The Power to Transform Adversities
Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden
September 12-14, 2014
The annual Ontario Dharma Celebration (ODC) is a wonderful opportunity for people all across Ontario to come together to receive practical spiritual advice. It is held in the National Kadampa Temple in Toronto, which arose from the compassionate intention of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU). All profits from the event go to the International Temples Project (ITP) fund, dedicated to public benefit. This year, we will establish a deep connection with Dorje Shugden, the Dharma protector of the Ganden Oral lineage. Gen Donsang will be granting the empowerment and will emphasize how, through relying on Dorje Shugden, we will get the real power to transform any adversity coming our way.
‘If we continually rely upon Dorje Shugden with faith, he will care for us like a mother cares for her child. He will guide us to the correct path, or liberating path, pacify our obstacles, gather necessary conditions for us and bestow upon us powerful blessings.’ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, 2006.
Gen Donsang is the Principal Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Montreal. Through his clear and accessible teachings, is able to assist students in their spiritual practice in accordance with the modern world. He presents Buddha’s advice with humour and sincerity.
