Accoglienza, Inc., Mariapolis Peace of Tagaytay

Tagaytay City, February 22-24, 2019

Gen Kelsang Tonglam will give commentary to the practice and teachings on the “Healing Power of Meditation”.

Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of the healing power of all the Buddhas. By relying upon Medicine Buddha sincerely we can be cured of physical and mental diseases and find release from the pain of the three inner poisons: anger, attachment and ignorance.

The Teachers

Gen Kelsang Tonglam is the NKT-IKBU (New Kadampa Tradition-International Kadampa Buddhist Union) National Spiritual Director for East Asia, and Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre Hong Kong and Kadampa Meditation Centre Taiwan. He is a pure disciple who has trained under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinponche for over 25 years. Gen Tonglam renowed for his ability to present Buddha’s most profound teachings in simple and most  practical ways, injecting a renewed enthusiasm and driving force in our ordinary life.

Jun Miranda, the Resident Teacher at Manila Kadampa Buddhist Centre, will guide the meditations. He has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso  for several years. He has a very sincere and practical approach to his teachings.
