Enlightenment: Summer Festival Review & Retreat

In our spiritually degenerate world the concept of enlightenment has become lost and people are becoming less interested in spiritual development. Despite our external search for happiness becoming more desperate, it can never deliver us real, lasting happiness: this can only be found within the blissful mind of enlightenment. Although such a goal may seem unrealistic, utilising a special presentation of Buddha's teachings known as "Kadam Lamrim" enlightenment can be attained quickly and easily.
