Empowerment of Four Armed Avalokiteshvara

June 16

with Gen Kelsang Chokyan

Avalokiteshvara is the Buddha of Enlightened Compassion. The empowerment is a blissful, guided meditation and special practice through which we connect with Avalokiteshvara and receive powerful, inspiring blessings.

We may think that too much focus on compassion will make us unhappy. However, when experienced correctly, compassion is a blissful mind, and there is nothing more powerful. It joyfully motivates us to help others and, consequently, empowers us to change and improve ourselves. Compassion for our family and friends heals our close relationships and makes them strong and stable. The more we open our hearts to others, the more our empathy grows. In this way we develop universal compassion, the most humane and beneficial mind of all and the springboard from which enlightenment will arise.

Our present compassion, however limited at the moment, is our Buddha Nature: our seed of enlightenment and limitless potential. Receiving the empowerment activates this seed. Learning to integrate the practice of Avalokiteshvara into our daily life transforms it into a joyful path to enlightenment and an enormous source of benefit and happiness to others.
Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Chokyan will grant the empowerment and give commentary to the brief but powerful practice of Avalokiteshvara, emphasizing the practical application of these profound and heart-opening methods to enrich our lives. Everyone is welcome.
