Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Avalokiteshvara
March 4 – 5
Teachings on Universal Compassion
Would you like to have more stable inner peace and more authentic compassion and skill when it comes to helping others? Do you have a sense that there is some power or fearlessness hidden within your mind that could be accessed and awakened?
Buddha Avalokiteshvara is the embodiment of the compassion of all enlightened beings. Through sincerely engaging in this short meditation practice we can gradually awaken our compassionate Buddha nature. We can solve our own daily problems by controlling our desirous attachment, anger and ignorance, and then from this state we can be of so much more benefit to others.
The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Avalokiteshvara’s enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings you can swiftly actualize our own potential and gain the confidence you need to progress along the spiritual path. Through the power of our compassion we can help to bring enormous relief to our suffering world.
Everyone is welcome!
