Empowerments

White Tara Empowerment

Saturday 16th March 2024, 10am – 4.30pm

During this very special day, Gen Kelsang Dragden, Resident Teacher at KMC Plymouth, will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara, an enlightened being who bestows long life, good fortune and wisdom.

We need a long life to complete our spiritual practice, wisdom to free ourselves and others from our everyday suffering, and good fortune or positive energy, to achieve a long-lasting experience of inner peace and happiness.

If we rely sincerely upon White Tara with faith, she will protect us from dangers of fire, and untimely death. Ultimately, she will guide us to the state of Buddhahood.

We shall be using the Sadhana (prayer booklet) entitled The Yoga of White Tara, Buddha of Long Life, available from Tharpa Publications HERE.

Schedule
Session 1: 10am – 12pm Empowerment of White Tara
Session 2: 1.30pm – 3pm Teaching
Session 3: 3.45pm – 4.30pm Meditation

Our Coffee Bar will be open during the breaks serving hot and cold drinks, delicious home-made cakes and a variety of snacks.

Everyone is welcome, and we can all benefit from attending these events, hearing the teachings and enjoying the special conditions we create by participating in the day.

If you have any questions about the empowerment or are unsure about anything, please do contact us or speak to one of our volunteers at the centre who will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.

What is an Empowerment?  
An Empowerment is an event in which we receive, or have bestowed upon us, special blessings (the transformation of our mind from an unhappy state to a happy state), that heal our mental continuum and awaken our pure nature – our potential we all have to become an enlightened being.

An Empowerment is the gateway through which we enter the Tantric teachings of Buddha; the means of training our mind by bringing the future result, or Buddhahood, into the present. It is the supreme path to full enlightenment.
