Freedom from Fear and Negativity - Empowerment of Vajrapani
Weekend Course with Gen Kelsang Sangye
3 - 4 December 2016


Including the Empowerment of Vajrapani

Due to our delusions such as anger, uncontrolled desire and ignorance, which are the nature of negativity, we experience fear, problems and suffering in our lives. In this course, Gen Sangye will explain how through using Buddha's wisdom we can gradually release ourselves from these sufferings and gain the peace and happiness we all long for. Through making a connection with Buddha Vajrapani during the empowerment, we can gain confidence in our ability to overcome delusions

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.
