Everyone is welcome to join in this wonderful opportunity to receive the Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni. In this ceremony we will make a special connection with Buddha Shakyamuni. By receiving his blessings we will receive powerful energy and inspiration through which we can transform our minds into peaceful, pure states and eventually to the supremely peaceful happiness of enlightenment.
Resident teacher Mandy Vickery will also give commentary to the Liberating Prayer, Praise to Buddha Shakyamuni. It is a special prayer composed by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, and is recited at the beginning of teachings, meditations, and prayers in Kadampa centers and classes throughout the world. Reciting this special spiritual prayer while contemplating its meaning is a powerful method for increasing our faith and refuge in Buddha.
