Blessing Empowerment of Avalokiteshvara


Saturday 27th November 2021 ~ 11am-4pm

At Maurice Jagger Centre, Lister Street, Halifax

With Buddhist nun Kelsang Chogma

The empowerment is a blissful, guided meditation through which we connect to Avalokiteshvara and receive powerful blessings. It is through these blessings that we can make quick progress in our spiritual practice.

The blessing empowerment will take place in the morning, then after a break for lunch we will receive the commentary to a daily practice of Avalokiteshvara taught in Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s most recent book, The Mirror of Dharma. 

This beautiful, concise commentary is an oral instruction that gives us a unique and direct tantric method for developing universal love and compassion. During this one day event we will dive into this remarkable commentary and practice so as to uncover its hidden depths and sublime power to change our mind and heart swiftly.

Ideal for anyone wanting to draw closer to Buddha and awaken their spiritual potential. Everybody welcome!
