Helping Everyone Find Happiness

September 22

with Gen Kelsang Chokyan

Buddha Shakyamuni attained enlightenment in ancient India and founded the Buddhist doctrine. Through this he was able to help everyone find the happiness of enlightenment. September 22 is one of the main holidays in Buddhism called “Buddha’s Return from Heaven Day.” To celebrate this year, our Resident Teacher, Gen Chokyan, will grant the empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and give teachings on the meaning of this special day. An empowerment is a guided meditation through which you will receive special blessings or energy to increase your qualities of enlightenment. Through receiving the empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, you will make a special connection with him and his teachings and develop great confidence to practice them. Everyone is welcome at this special event regardless of previous experience.
