A Heart of Loving Kindness: Healing a Hurting World

The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya with Gen Kelsang Gomlam

Saturday, March 17 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM

When we have a strong loving mind, our whole experience of the world changes. In addition, others feel this change, and respond to it. In this very real sense, love has the power to transform our world.

Buddha Maitreya is the embodiment of the loving kindness of all the Buddhas. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation that connects us to Maitreya’s enlightened love, giving us great power in our spiritual development.

Gen Kelsang Gomlam will grant the empowerment and give commentary to the special practice of Buddha Maitreya. Through identifying strongly with his qualities, we nurture them within ourselves. In this way, we begin to become someone whose loving kindness transforms the world.
