The South African Dharma Celebration: Realize Your True Potential

The South African Dharma Celebration is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy spiritual teachings and meditations with like-minded friends.  During this special weekend event, international teacher Gen-la Kunsang, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva.   

The function of Buddha Vajrasattva is to purify our body, speech and mind and our impure actions, through which we can become a completely pure being our self. 

During this weekend event we make a deep connection with this enlightened being and receive his special blessings.  This enables us to purify the effect of our past negativities which are obstacles to true happiness and peace of mind.

The SADC will be streamed online.  There is also an option to view the online festival at the Centres in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.  Limited seating is available due to the need for social distancing. Please contact your local Centre directly with your online booking receipt if you’re interested to attend at the Centre.
