Blessing Empowerment Buddha Manjushri

Wisdom is a virtuous intelligent mind that sees through the superficial veneer of things to the truth. It is a mind that aligns us with reality, thereby liberating us from ignorance, the source of all our suffering. How can we develop this mind? By tuning in to the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. When we open ourself to receiving Manjushri’s blessings, our mind is empowered to experience real insight into the truth of how things exist. 

This event is open to everyone. It will include the Blessing Empowerment of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri. This is a special Buddhist meditation practice whereby, through guided meditation and visualization, we can connect deeply with our own potential for inner peace, as well as receiving positive energy, inspiration, and authentic joy into our mind.

Then Gen Zopa will briefly explain the practice of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and how to draw close to him.  Having received the empowerment we need to receive instructions on this practice so that we can increase our wisdom and compassion.  Through this we will be able to solve our own problems and help others to solve their problems.
