Love has the power to completely transform our world. In these uncertain times, we can rely upon the mind of loving kindness to protect and guide us, and to give us the ability to free all living beings from suffering.

In this empowerment, we engage in a blissful guided meditation that connects us to Buddha Maitreya's enlightened loving kindness, giving us great power to become a loving, pure being. Through this we will be able to greatly benefit others.

As Venerable Geshe-la has taught:

Loving kindness is the very essence of Kadam Dharma and a precious method to attain enlightenment. We will be born as Buddha through loving kindness for all living beings. In reality loving kindness gives you everything.
