Nov 4 | Liberating Path: Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni


Special Empowerment and Commentary to the Liberating Prayer with Gen Kelsang Jindak
November 4, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Everyone is welcome!

On this special Saturday, Gen Jindak will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism. By receiving this empowerment we can make a deep personal connection with Buddha and receive his powerful blessings to heal our mental continuum and awaken our potential for enlightenment.

Gen Jindak will then give a commentary to the Liberating Prayer, through which we will understand how Buddha’s love for all beings without exception, can protect us from our inner problems such as anger, and is the source of all happiness. Through practicing what Buddha taught we can transform our life and experience profound inner peace and happiness.

“If we understand and contemplate the meaning of the Liberating Prayer – it is the best method to develop faith in Buddha and his teachings, which is our spiritual life and the root of all Dharma realizations.”    – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
