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.

Freedom from all Fear

Empowerment of Buddha White Tara and teachings on Faith

with Gen la Kelsang Khyenrab

At the annual Dharma Celebration, an opportunity for students of Ontario Centres to celebrate together, Gen-la Khyenrab will bestow the empowerment of Buddha White Tara. White Tara is a female enlightened being whose function is to bestow long life, good fortune and wisdom. The compassion of all the Buddhas appears in the form of Arya WhiteTara. 
If we rely upon her with faith she will protect us from heavy diseases such as cancer and she will protect us from the dangers of fire and many other fears and disasters. If we are wise we will wish to receive the blessings of this enlightened being in order to benefit ourself and others.  Gen la Khyenrab will give a commentary to the practice of White Tara and teachings on how to develop and maintain the three types of faith.
