An Empowerment is a beautiful blessing ceremony that allows us to make a close connection with a particular enlightened being. The ceremony includes teachings, meditations, guided visualizations and prayers, following which we receive an explanation of a special practice whereby we can sustain and expand this connection and, over time, take on the good qualities of that enlightened being.


Purifying our Mind: Vajrasattva Empowerment
May 1 all-day

Buddha Vajrasattva is the manifestation of the completely pure mind of all the Buddhas. This special blessing ceremony will allow us to make a deep connection with Buddha Vajrasattva’s enlightened mind, lay down the painful burden of our past negativities, and receive deep healing through his purifying blessings.

During the Empowerment and related commentary, Gen Suma will teach us how we can purify our mind, thereby clearing out the obstacles that prevent us from steadily actualizing our potential to experience lasting freedom and happiness.
