Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya – Buddha of Love and Kindness

Jun 23 @ 6:00 pm - Jun 25 @ 1:00 pm

R450.00 – R600.00

Transforming our Life with Love

Buddha Maitreya is the manifestation of all the Buddhas’ realization of loving kindness, and the next Buddha that will appear in this world age.

What is an empowerment?

“An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.”  — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

This empowerment is a transformative guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Maitreya’s enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings we can swiftly actualize our own potential and gain the confidence we need to progress along the spiritual path.

Through receiving Buddha Maitreya’s blessings our mind transforms into a peaceful, positive state, with a greater sense of purpose and a vision for our life filled with more love.. 

The empowerment will be followed by a retreat session on Sunday, How to Become Buddha Maitreya, and to take the teachings to heart.  

Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is required.
