One of the senior teachers of Kadampa Buddhism, Kadam Lucy has taught extensively in England, Florida, and San Francisco, and helped set up many thriving meditation centers since 1981. She is regularly invited to teach courses around the United States and Europe due to her skill in presenting both simple and profound subjects with great clarity. For many years, one of her main jobs was to help with the editing and production of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books, and she has engaged in extensive meditation retreat.

In celebration of Buddha's Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe-la, our Root Guru and Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. On this auspicious day, with minds of rejoicing and gratitude, we will offer him our faith through using the special prayer Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples and collecting our Guru’s name mantra in a one-day retreat.

Join us for a talk on a practical approach to refuge that will energize our spiritual life, followed by the actual Buddhist Refuge Ceremony, a blessed ritual meditation dating back to the time of Buddha Shakyamuni. This Ceremony draws us closer to the love and protection of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha; and you can choose whether you use it to formally become a Buddhist or simply as a powerful blessing and inspiration on your spiritual journey.
