Blessing Empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa

Friday, May 1 – Sunday, May 3

with Gen Kelsang Gomlam

The source of all our suffering is our ignorance. If we have wisdom, there is no basis for experiencing problems. By relying upon the Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa, our compassion, wisdom, and spiritual power naturally increase. For Kadampas, there are no more powerful teachings or blessings than those of Je Tsongkhapa. By opening our heart to Je Tsongkhapa and sincerely relying upon his help, our realizations will definitely grow. We will discover a deep, unshakable sense of inner peace that brings great meaning to our life.

Gen Kelsang Gomlam will grant the empowerment, and give teachings on Heart Jewel Practice: The Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa. She will also lead the Sunday Retreat Sessions, providing guidance and commentary to inspire us to integrate this powerful practice into our busy lives.
