“An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
This empowerment is a sublime guided meditation through which we develop a relationship with Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and form an extraordinary vision of spiritual transformation for ourselves and our world. Through this guided meditation and blessings, we become empowered to nurture our own innate potential for wisdom, which dispels the darkness of our inner confusion and gives us the pure happiness of mental peace.
Buddha Tara – known as "the Swift One, the Heroine" – is a manifestation of the fearless wisdom of all enlightened beings. To come to our aid, she moves faster than wind; for countless generations people have relied upon her for protection against fears and anxieties, and for guidance, inspiration, and a steady source of encouragement. She is the perfect source of refuge for our troubled world.The empowerment of Green Tara is granted via a blissful ritual meditation that has been passed down from generation to generation since the time of Buddha himself.
