The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya
Nov. 17 & 18
‘Maitreya is the manifestation of all the Buddha’s realization of loving kindness. His function is to guide us along the stages of the path to enlightenment.’ ~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Buddha Maitreya is the manifestation of the loving-kindness of all the Buddhas. Receiving this empowerment directly connects us with our own potential to be loving, kind, and peaceful. Through our own experience we will understand how keeping a loving heart creates happiness in all of our relationships and is the supreme protection from problems and pain. Eventually, through receiving Buddha Maitreya’s blessings continually, we will come to know the most powerful love, the love that wishes everyone to be happy all the time.
During this special event, we will receive teachings on developing loving kindness as well as the blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya. Through receiving this empowerment we will draw closer to this enlightened being and awaken our own potential to develop the universal love of a Buddha. Maitreya’s inspiring blessings will help us improve our ability to care for and love others, which is the source of all our happiness and the best protection from problems and pain. Eventually, through receiving these blessings continually, we will come to know the most powerful love, the love that wishes for everyone to attain the complete and lasting happiness of enlightenment, and moves us to work joyfully and tirelessly towards that goal.
An empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Buddha Maitreya, the embodiment of all enlightened energy of loving kindness. In an empowerment we connect our heart to this enlightened being transforming his good qualities into our own mind, awakening our pure potential and developing our goodheart. By receiving the blessings of Buddha Maitreya we will naturally draw closer to him and learn to awaken our Buddha nature through the profound tantric practice of self-generation.
Everyone is welcome.
