Advice for a Happy Life:
The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Green Tara
with Teachings on Advice from Atisha’s Heart with Gen Kelsang Jampa
This year, Gen Kelsang Jampa, the NKT-IKBU Eastern US National Spiritual Director, will be the main teacher for the Celebration and will grant the empowerment of Buddha Green Tara and give commentary to “Advice from Atisha’s Heart”. Atisha was the great Indian Buddhist Master who originally established Kadampa Buddhism in Tibet. While in Tibet he gave his disciples this special essential teaching. If we take this personal advice to heart, it will enable us to keep a happy and healthy mind throughout our busy daily life. By relying on Buddha Tara and developing a deep understanding of Atisha’s advice, we will attain special wisdom that can make every moment of our life meaningful.
The introductory talk on Friday night will be given by Kelsang Chenma, the Resident Teacher of KMC-GA. The meditations will be led by Gen Kelsang Nyema, the Resident Teacher of Ganden Center in South Carolina. Read more about the Celebration teachers.
