Kalpa Bhadra Buddhist Centre, 24 Rugby St, Merivale, Christchurch

About the Retreat

At the 2022 NKT-IKBU International Spring Festival in Malaga, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong shared an important instruction from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. He asked Gen-la Dekyong to give the transmission and commentary of the Mantra of Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka, requesting all New Kadampa Tradition Centres and practitioners to engage in retreat to collect 100,000 recitations of this mantra. By reciting this mantra with faith, and a pure motivation we will place very strong potentials within our mind to easily accomplish all spiritual attainments. This retreat also includes the Vajradaka Burning Offering, a blessed and powerful method for purifying our negative karma.

This year you will have to the opportunity to fulfil Venerable Geshe-la’s request and join a Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka counting retreat at Kalpa Bhadra Buddhist Centre. Not only will you receive great benefit for yourself, but as Venerable Geshe-la said, this retreat is a wishfulfilling jewel for the development of Kadam Dharma internationally.
