The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Manjushri: Transforming our World Together, with Wisdom

June 14 @ 6:00 pm - June 16 @ 12:15 pm

R100,00 – R600,00

The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Manjushri 

Transforming our World, together with Wisdom with Gen Kelsang Mila 

 

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 sublime guided meditation through which we develop a relationship with Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and form an extraordinary vision of spiritual transformation for ourselves and our world. Through this guided meditation and blessings, we become empowered to nurture our own innate potential for wisdom, which dispels the darkness of our inner confusion and gives us the pure happiness of mental peace.
