Empowerment of Prajnaparamita
with Teachings on Wisdom
Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who is the embodiment of the perfection of wisdom. “Prajna” is the Sanskrit word for wisdom, and “paramita” is the Sanskrit word for “perfection”. She is often referred to as the “Great Mother”, because it is from the perfection of wisdom that the mind of enlightenment is born.
We all have the potential to become enlightened, to become just like Prajnaparamita. How can we actualize that potential? By developing wisdom, especially the profound wisdom that understands the true nature of things. Guided by this wisdom, we travel from joy to joy along our spiritual path, experiencing fewer and fewer problems, and moving ever closer towards the realization of our pure nature.
On Saturday morning, Gen Suma will grant the blessing empowerment of Prajnaparamita. This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation through which we will receive Prajnaparamita’s wisdom blessings. Gen Suma will give a two-part commentary to the practice of the Yoga of Great Mother Prajnaparamita, which will include teachings on the perfection of wisdom.
This weekend is the ideal preparation for our silent retreat on emptiness to be held at Clarksburg Retreat Centre on Oct 26 – 28.
