The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha White Tara, Buddha of Long Life
& Teachings with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, National Spiritual Director for Canada
June 11 – 15, 2021
Long Life, Good Fortune & Wisdom
White Tara is a female enlightened being and her function is to bestow long life, good fortune and wisdom. We need all three to fulfil our deepest wishes for pure and everlasting happiness. If we rely upon White Tara with deep faith she will protect us from heavy diseases, disasters, fires and many other dangers. Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment, give commentary and explanations on how to integrate these beautiful practices into our daily lives.
By relying upon her we can become free from all the outer and inner obstacles and hindrances to our progress. The Yoga of White Tara is a special spiritual method to accomplish all attainments – especially good fortune and wisdom. Wisdom is our inner Spiritual Guide, our best friend and helper, and everyone needs greater wisdom. Everybody is welcome to enjoy this blissful National Festival.
The Empowerment & Teachings
Gen-la will begin by granting the empowerment of Buddha White Tara, the Buddha of loving kindness, and explain how through relying on her we can become free from all the outer and inner obstacles and hindrances to our progress. She will bless our mind to become a completely pure being, a Buddha. Through this we will be able to really benefit others.
