Awaken Your Spiritual Potential
The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni
with Gen Kelsang Ingchug
January 26–27, 2018
Join us for this very special event. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Buddha Shakyamuni lived over 2500 years ago and is the founder of modern day Buddhism. Today, his teachings continue to inspire people worldwide and lead them to correct spiritual paths. If we integrate his teachings into our daily life we will be able to solve all our inner problems and attain a truly peaceful mind.
“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. However, if we establish peace within our minds, outer peace will come naturally.” —Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
What is an Empowerment?
An empowerment is a special blessing ceremony during which we make a personal connection with Buddha, enabling him to heal our mental continuum and awaken our spiritual nature. Then when we rely upon him, we will definitely receive his help and protection.
This event is open to everyone, Buddhist or not, regardless of previous experience.

8–9am Chanted Prayers
12:00-2:00pm Lunch Break (many restaurants in walking distance)
