30 July – 14 August
The New Kadampa International Summer Festival takes place (online) from the evening of Friday 30 July until lunchtime on Saturday 14 August.
During this period, in order to allow everybody – teachers, students, café volunteers, office staff et al – to attend this festival, Buddha Land centre is suspending its usual activities.
But it isn’t closing completely.
Watch the Festival at Buddha Land Centre
Buddha Land centre will be screening the festival sessions, and everyone is welcome to join – just book the festival directly (follow this link: https://kadampafestivals.org/summer) and let us know which sessions you want to watch in the Meditation Room at Buddha Land Centre, Keighley, along with others. You can phone us or email us, or talk to us in person, to discuss coming to the centre to watch the festival as part of a group.
There are two parts to the Summer Festival, and you can sign up for a single week (either for Friday 30 July – Wednesday 4 August, or for Friday 6 August – Saturday 14 August) or both weeks, as you choose.
During this period, Buddha Land centre will be reducing its activities but will not close completely.
Chill in the World Peace Café
Our café will continue to operate its usual hours, and you are most welcome to spend some time relaxing in here.
