Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Prajnaparamita
Discover Our True Nature – awakening our potential
Sunday 30 December 2018
11.00am – 5.00pm
with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Devi
in English translation into German
We often view ourselves in a very fixed way and relate to this sense of self as if it were our true nature. Viewing our self in this way can make us feel that we can’t change, improve, and become a better person and our limitations seem an intrinsic part of our nature (“it’s just who I am”).
Buddha taught that all our suffering and unhappiness arise because our way of relating to ourselves is completely mistaken. Through meditating on Buddha’s teachings on emptiness, or ultimate truth, 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, self-imposed, and by training in this wisdom we can clear this confusion and discover and experience our true nature – peaceful, limitless, and free.
In order to actualize this pure, limitless potential within us and realize the profound wisdom understanding the true nature of things we need to receive inspiring blessings from the Buddhas.
On this course we will receive the empowerment of Buddha Prajnaparamita who is the female Buddha of profound wisdom. The empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation through which we receive Prajnaparamita’s wisdom blessings. In the empowerment and commentary, Gen Devi will teach the brief practice of Prajnaparamita self-generation, which comes from Buddha’s tantric teachings, the quick path to enlightenment. Applying these methods in our daily life allows us to actualize the enlightened qualities of wisdom, love, joy and compassion in our own lives.
The empowerment and essential commentary to the tantric practice of Buddha Prajnaparamita will take place on Sunday 30 December 2018 from 11.00am – 5.00pm (including a delicious vegetarian lunch).
Empowerment Day Course fee:
Sunday 30 December: 37€ (includes a delicious vegetarian lunch)
