Rays of sunshine and birdsong greeted us on the morning of the first day of the festival
Some took the opportunity to sit outside in the gardens and along walkways, read Dharma books and quietly contemplate. . Many others have had breakfast with their Sangha friends, including discussing the teaching of the previous night.
Each part of the Festival is designed to help us deepen our understanding and our Dharma experience and thus enhance our inner peace experience. As Gen-la Thubten, Venerable Geshe-la said last night, "Forget all the problems and difficulties you may have had before, and focus on developing a peaceful mind all the time. You should do this by listening, meditating and meditating on the teachings, and by our own determination. "We were encouraged to keep this advice in our heart."
During the guided meditations, Gen Rinchung helped us to gain a deeper experience of what had been learned in the first teaching of Gen-la.Following its gentle and clear direction, we meditated on a determination to believe in karma – the cause of suffering is non-virtuous actions and the cause of happiness is virtuous deeds, at every moment we mix our mind with the Dharma and increase the light of wisdom in our mind.
During the afternoon break, many people have enjoyed the forest trails and scenic drive along Morecambe Bay.The sun was out and shining all day long.
] While the golden light of afternoon sun was pouring into the Temple, Gen-la Thubten introduced us to the Great Mother Prajnaparamita. He explained that because all Buddhas are born from the perfection of wisdom, she is the mother of all Buddhas. Its function is to pacify our obstacles and grant us the highest perfection of wisdom, which is the union of great bliss and emptiness, through which we can attain enlightenment in this life 
Gen-la then skillfully guided us into a series of deep and wonderful meditations by which we received the special blessings of Prajnaparamita's body, word and spirit. It was like bathing in the warm sunlight of Buddha's wisdom – that's wonderful.
There is no such thing as a takeover in the first Kadampa Temple for world peace, especially when it is filled with Kadampas from around the world. By the power of this holy place, it is truly a magical and transformative experience.
