Blessing Empowerment of Prajnaparamita

Blessing Empowerment of Prajnaparamita

Saturday, March 23

Prajnaparamita is the female Buddha of profound wisdom. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive wisdom blessings directly from Prajnaparamita’s enlightened mind, empowering us to experience deep healing and real inner progress. In the empowerment and ensuing commentary, Gen Kelsang Wangpo will teach the Buddhist tantric practice known as self-generation. Applying this brief practice to our own life will draw us ever closer to the enlightened qualities of wisdom, love, compassion, and joy.

We all have the potential for these enlightened qualities. To fulfill our potential we need to develop profound wisdom that realizes the true nature of things. We also need to receive the inspiring blessings of the enlightened beings, the Buddhas. The meditations of this blessing empowerment will help us to transform in this meaningful way.

Typically we view ourselves in a very fixed way, relating to this sense of self as if it were our true nature. This view can make us feel that we can’t change, improve, or become a better person. Our limitations seem an intrinsic part of our nature (“it’s just who I am”).

Buddha’s teachings reveal that all our suffering and unhappiness arise because of this completely mistaken view. Following the profound wisdom we gain in the empowerment and corresponding self-generation practice we can discover our true nature and realize that the only limitations we have are the ones created by our minds of confusion. Our limitations are illusory and self-imposed. Training in Prajnaparamita’s wisdom clears this confusion, allowing us to discover and experience our true nature – an enlightened nature.

Everyone is welcome.
