Wisdom and Long Life


DAY:  Sunday Jan 12, 2020

TIME:  9.30am-3.30pm

TEACHER:  Kelsang Zopa

COST:  $40

WHERE:  970 Blanshard Street, Victoria

REGISTRATION:  Payment in advance will be available through noon on Jan 11 or when registration reaches 35.  Payment in advance guarantees you a place and speeds up the process at the door. We suggest you arrive at about 9:15am which is when we anticipate opening the doors.  Seats are limited, we encourage pre-registration.  Thank you.


During this very special day, Gen Zopa will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara, a female enlightened being who bestows long life, good fortune and wisdom.

We need a long life to complete our spiritual practice, we need wisdom to free ourselves and others from our daily pain and problems, and we need good fortune or positive energy to achieve a long-lasting experience of inner peace and happiness.

An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a deep connection with this inspiring Buddha and receive her healing, joyful and protective blessings.  The empowerment will take place in the morning, followed by commentary in the afternoon.  Everyone is welcome!
