The Venue and Occasion for the Play - The NKT-IKBU International Summer Festival at the Kadampa Temple for World Peace

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition organizes Dharma Festivals and Celebrations in many countries throughout the world, including the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union International Spring and Summer Festivals in England and the NKT-IKBU Fall Festival held at various international locations.

At these Festivals people gather from around the world; the many languages and accents spoken during the play reflect the different nationalities of people attending the Festivals. Drawn by a common wish to deepen their understanding of Buddha’s teachings, at these Festivals they receive special teachings and empowerments, and enjoy a spiritual holiday.

The Life of Buddha was filmed in the Temple for World Peace at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, England, from plays performed and produced by dedicated volunteers during the NKT-IKBU Summer Festivals between 2006 and 2012.

Special footage of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche included on this DVD

At the end of the live performance of the play in 2009, Venerable Geshe-la gave a talk in which he set out clearly the spiritual significance of the play and gave encouragement and advice on how to enter and make progress on the spiritual path. This footage is included as a 15 minute track at the end of the DVD.

This is a holy, spiritual play. Every part of this play shows great meaning. It is not an ordinary play

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
