Summer Buddhist Festival
30 July - 14 August
The NKT-IKBU International Summer Festival 2021, July 30 – August 14 – two weeks of inspiring empowerments and teachings from the two most senior Teachers in NKT, with a short retreat in each week.
Due to the unusual situation, we have received permission to stream the entire Summer Festival including the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini.
It is our intention if permitted by the UK Government Covid Guidelines in place at the time of the Festival, to also have an in-person event that will be streamed at the live UK time. The empowerments and teachings will also be streamed in several other time zones to give as many people as possible the opportunity to join. Live translation will be available in several languages. More details on the format of the Festival will be available soon.
In-person attendance (if permitted to go ahead) will have very limited numbers and will be determined by the UK Government restrictions. We strongly encourage you not to book travel yet as we do not know if we will be able to accept your in-person booking. Detailed guidelines for the in-person event are subject to UK Government clarification, the timing of which is currently unknown.
