Empowerment Day– Buddha Shakyamuni

Buddha Shakyamuni is the founder of Buddhism. By receiving his powerful blessings in this empowerment and making a special connection with him, we can solve all our problems and discover the lasting happiness we have always wanted.

An empowerment is a blessing ceremony where we make a special connection with an Enlightened Being and receive their help and inspiration. 

The empowerment will be granted by Gen Pagpa, who has 20 years experience in studying meditation and Buddhism and teaches in a warm, loving manner which is easy to understand and practice.

Gen Pagpa will also give a commentary to the Liberating Prayer, a special praise and request to Buddha Shakyamuni written by the founder of Modern Kadampa Buddhism, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. By contemplating the meaning of this prayer we can increase our faith in Buddha and his teachings, thus receiving his help more easily in our daily lives.

‘Making Peace With The Past’

During our daily life our thoughts often turn to the past – during which we develop regret, sadness or nostalgia. Many of our unhappy feelings come from these memories and it is hard to let go. This course will teach us how we can let go of the past and move on, making peace with things that have happened and cannot be changed.

The class is taught by Gen Pagpa, who has 20 years experience in studying meditation and Buddhism and teaches in a warm, loving manner which is easy to understand and practice.
