Ignite Your Wisdom: The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Manjushri

An empowerment “empowers” us with a special vision and a sense of what is possible for us to accomplish. We get a glimpse of how a pure world and our own pure mind are related and that gives us real confidence and hope for the future. Everyone has the potential for deep and lasting happiness; this potential is activated during an empowerment. We also make a new friend, an enlightened being who is the manifestation of Enlightened Wisdom, Buddha Manjushri. 

Wisdom will never deceive us. It is an inner illumination that guides us along profound paths. With wisdom, our mind is always balanced and comfortable. In particular, the wisdom that realizes the true nature of reality has the power to liberate us completely from our self-created mental prison, giving us tremendous power to benefit everyone through completing the path to perfect freedom, enlightenment. 

In addition to granting the empowerment of Buddha Manjushri, Gen Kelsang Gomlam will give teachings on how to integrate this experience in particular and wisdom in general into our busy modern lives as we all recover from the challenges of the past year. There is no better protection in the world for our problems and pain than wisdom in our heart!

Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is required.
