About the Empowerment Weekend
During this very special weekend, Gen Rigpa will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara, an 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.
On Sunday, Gen Rigpa will also give a rare and precious commentary to Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s Long Life Prayer, helping us to understand who Venerable Geshe-la is, and how this precious Spiritual Guide is transforming the practice of Buddhism in the modern world. Everyone is welcome.
