December, Sat 1st & Sun 2nd | 10:00 to 13:15 | with Kadam Mark | KMC Copenhagen

In the example of Buddha Je Tsongkhapa we find a vision of authentic hope of wisdom for ourselves and our world. He is the embodiment of a fully awakened compassion, wisdom, and spiritual power.

In this way we can begin the journey to our full our spiritual potential for wisdom, as well as find lasting inner peace and happiness.
