Receive the blessing empowerment of Buddha Vajrapani, the Buddha of Spiritual Power. Our resident teacher, Gen Norden will guide us on a blissful meditation and connect us with our innate power to overcome mental disturbances and gain a profound experience of inner peace and joy.


Would you like to gain more power in overcoming obstacles and skill in helping others? The Buddha of spiritual power, known as Buddha Vajrapani, can help us to realize our full potential.

Buddha Vajrapani is the embodiment of the power and skill of all enlightened beings. Although his nature is love, his fierce aspect emphasizes his ability to empower us to abandon our delusions and negativity. He can help us pacify all obstacles through the force of spontaneous great bliss.

As Venerable Geshe Kelsang explains, the function of Vajrapani “is to destroy living beings’ enemy of delusions by bestowing special power upon their body and mind.” Buddha Vajrapani can also heal our own and others' sickness.

This empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Vajrapani’s enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings, we can swiftly actualize our own potential for a fearless heart and gain the confidence we need to progress successfully along the spiritual path. Through the power of our courageous compassion, we can help to bring enormous relief to our suffering world.

Everyone is welcome!
