Everyone welcome!

The Midwest Dharma Celebration is a regional Buddhist meditation festival where people gather to receive blessings or inspiring energy, learn about the Buddhist spiritual path and meditate together. This regional event is organized by Kadampa meditation centers and branches in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Iowa. In 2024, the Midwest Dharma Celebration is hosted by Kadampa Meditation Center Madison.

During this rare and precious event, the New Kadampa Tradition’s Midwestern US National Spiritual Director, Gen Kelsang Demo, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification. Whether you are new to Buddhism or an experienced practitioner, you are welcome to attend this incredible spiritual event and become a source of peace and happiness for yourself and others.

We hope you can attend the Celebration in person. For those unable to join in person, Delayed Video Replay registration is available.

Our Founder, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
