The Blessing Empowerment of Avalokiteshvara
Saturday 14 December
10am – 5pm
at AKBC with Resident Teacher Kelsang Kunden
Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is the manifestation of the compassion of all Buddhas; the compassion of all Buddhas appears as Avalokiteshvara. He is the synthesis of all Buddhas.
At this special event, Kelsang Kunden will grant the empowerment of Buddha Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion. This empowerment is a blissful guided meditation that awakens our potential for universal love and compassion. Kunden will teach the practice of Avalokiteshvara from The Mirror of Dharma with Additions – the Fall Festival teachings. We will engage in the practice or “sadhana” of Avalokiteshvara.
Through sincerely practising the instructions presented in this sadhana, we can first solve our own daily problems by controlling our desire, anger and ignorance, and then with this ability we can lead people through the world to the correct spiritual path through which they can find the real meaning of human life.
~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
