Freedom from Suffering and Problems, Empowerment of Buddha Manjushri
A Special Event
Saturday 18 - Sunday 19 March 2017


This special weekend event will include teachings on wisdom. Wisdom teaches us what to do and what not to do, like an inner teacher. It functions to lift our mind when we are depressed and to calm our mind when we are distracted. Our mind is then always balanced and comfortable, and free of problems and suffering.

Through the empowerment of Buddha Manjushri we will make a connection with him to help receive his blessings to develop the wisdom in our own mind.

What is an empowerment?
An empowerment is a ritual ceremony and guided blissful meditation through which we can receive special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.
