The development of a compassionate heart brings many benefits to us, individually, and the world, collectively. With compassion, all of the worlds problems would be solved. So, we can say that compassion needs to become our new normal. The empowerment of Avalokiteshvara provides us with an incredibly rare opportunity and method to improve our compassionate nature. Everyone is welcome to this special event.
WHAT IS AN EMPOWERMENT?
An Empowerment includes teachings and blissful guided meditations through which we connect with a Buddha and receive his or her special blessings.
WHY RECEIVE THE EMPOWERMENT OF AVALOKITESHVARA?
Avalokiteshvara is known as the Buddha of Compassion. With Avalokiteshvara’s blessings, practices, and guidance we can increase our compassion. We all have some compassion from time to time, but the compassion of an enlightened being is unwavering, radiating from their very being all the time. A compassionate heart is a source of comfort for others and the best method for improving our good qualities and preventing suffering for ourselves.
