Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

The UK Dharma Celebration is inspired by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso., the Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is a contemporary Buddhist meditation master renowned throughout the world for the path of wisdom and compassion he has introduced into modern society. This special path is helping thousands of people in every continent find meaning and hope in their lives.

Through over 30 years of teachings, 21 authoritative books and a global network of Temples and meditation centres that he has established, he has made the immensely practical teachings of Buddha available to us in a form we can easily understand and practise in our busy modern lives.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso teaches that all the problems we face in the world originate in the mind and that the only way to solve them and to find true happiness, both for ourselves individually and for society as a whole, is to learn to improve our mind.

Without improving our mind there is no way to solve our human problems.
