6:30pm – Potluck

Join us for a vegetarian potluck and enjoy some good company. Please bring some light vegetarian food to share.

7:00pm – Movie:  The Life of Buddha

Following the potluck, we will watch a projection of The Life of Buddha movie in our meditation room. This special dramatic presentation was inspired by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and his teachings, and visually captures the essence of Buddha Shakyamuni’s life.

Based on the twelve principal deeds of Buddha, it reveals in a clear, entertaining and moving way the essential characteristics of a spiritual life. It was performed over various years by Kadampa Buddhist students at the NKT-IKBU International Summer Festival in the Kadampa World Peace Temple at Manjushri KMC, UK.

This screening also features a recording of a talk by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso at the Kadampa World Peace Temple, England.
