Canadian Festivals and Celebrations
Canadian National Festival
The Fearless Heart
The Empowerment of Buddha Vajrapani
June 7 – 11, 2019
at Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada
Open to everyone, the Canadian National Festival is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a spiritual break with like-minded people from around Canada. During this special Festival, Gen-la Jampa will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Vajrapani, the embodiment of the power of all the Buddhas. Although his nature is love, his appearance is fierce. This reveals his function, which is to empower our minds to abandon our confused ways of thinking.
The empowerment is a guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Vajrapani’s enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings we can swiftly actualise our own potential for a fearless heart, and gain the confidence we need to progress successfully along the spiritual path.
Throughout the weekend, guided by International Teacher and Deputy Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, we will explore how to integrate this self-confidence into our life and bring about the changes we wish for.
