Blessing Empowerment of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri

When wisdom is in our hearts, our mind is very clear, confident, and free from disturbing thoughts. Wisdom gives us clarity and insight and, like an inner spiritual guide, helps us to act thoughtfully, skillfully, and meaningfully in daily life. Since all our negative minds are based upon the opposite of wisdom – confusion – everyone needs to develop wisdom.

There is one type of wisdom that, through its realization, will permanently free us from mental pain – the source of our daily unhappiness. This wisdom, called “Emptiness”, is the profound realization that everything in our world exists as a mere appearance to our mind, like a dream. Through “waking up” to this truth, we will discover that the world is not as real as it appears, and this sacred knowledge of emptiness will liberate us from mental anxiety permanently.

This event is open to everyone. It will begin with the Blessing Empowerment of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri. This is a special Buddhist meditation practice whereby, through guided meditation and visualization, we can connect deeply with our own potential for inner peace, as well as receiving positive energy, inspiration, and authentic joy into our mind.

Then Gen Thekchen will explain the practice of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and how to draw close to him.

On Sunday, Gen Thekchen will lead a 4 session retreat on ultimate truth emptiness.

This is a wonderful way to end the year – with profound wisdom and blessings!
