Announcing launch of a special new festival website
Exploring Kindness and Resilience – Timeless Gems for Our Modern World
We are delighted to offer the Buddhist Spring Festival 2020 as a virtual event.
The virtual festival will bring together a variety of rich spiritual practices for healing the heart and methods to attain inner peace, mental strength and well-being.
A special new festival website will go live by mid-October.
Visitors to the vibrant virtual program can view free talks and meditation sessions, explore a variety of Buddhist methods and meditation techniques, and learn about the advantages of meditation for a happier life.
The virtual festival program includes short talks and guided meditations as well as gallery displays of our magnificent Tibetan Buddhist temple, and peaceful gardens. There will also be children’s meditation sessions. The full program will be available in the near future.
The Ceremony for World Peace, an important event in our festival calendar, which has traditionally welcomed political leaders, community representatives and religious leaders from a wide range of religious backgrounds, will be a feature of the virtual festival.
This year’s festival theme, Exploring Kindness and Resilience – Timeless Gems for Our Modern World, will focus on Buddhist methods to foster kindness and resilience.
Kindness builds trust between people and creates a more resilient community. Events in this world are ever changing, and resilient communities, drawing strength from each other, can more easily navigate the challenges and uncertainty.
We warmly welcome you to join us for the virtual Buddhist Spring Festival on the weekend of 7 and 8 November 2020.
The virtual festival is offered free of charge by the Tibetan Buddhist Society. There will be an option for people to make a donation if they would like to.
