Manjushri Empowerment
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. with Gen Kelsang Norden

You are welcome to attend just for the morning Empowerment, or stay for the whole day.

An empowerment is a special blessing that heals our mind and awakens our pure potential. During this empowerment we will make a special connection with the wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

Wisdom will never deceive us. It is an inner illumination that guides us along profound paths. With wisdom, our mind is always balanced and comfortable. In particular, the wisdom that realizes the true nature of reality has the power to liberate us completely
from our self-created mental prison, giving us tremendous power to benefit others through attaining enlightenment.
