WHAT IS AN EMPOWERMENT?
An empowerment is a beautiful Buddhist blessing ritual and guided meditation of both the common and uncommon paths of Buddhism through which we make a deep connection with a Buddha’s enlightened mind, bringing peace, hope, and happiness to ourselves and others. The object of our meditation is actual Tantra – a realization that protects us from ordinary appearances and conceptions.
WHO IS ARYA TARA?
The female Buddha of active compassion who, as the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, is known as the ‘Mother of the Conquerors’. She is also known as the ‘Great Liberator’ who pacifies all sickness, poverty, misfortune, fighting and quarrelling, and causes the Dharma and all good fortune to flourish. Her green-coloured body symbolizes that she is also the manifestation of the fully purified wind element of all the Buddhas, and like the wind is quick to respond to the prayers of those in need. Her right leg extended also indicates her readiness to help others.
WHY RECEIVE THE EMPOWERMENT OF ARYA TARA?
Through receiving Arya Tara’s blessings, we can make a powerful connection with her, and thus be guided along spiritual paths. Enjoy the company of like-minded people from around Texas, and empower your spiritual life at this special one-day event.
There is so much uncertainty in our life and our world that it is not surprising we often feel fearful. Sometimes these fears are manifest, and at other times, they lie beneath the surface, giving rise to insecurity, anxiety and a lingering unrest.
During this special event, Gen Kelsang Wangpo will grant the empowerment of Green Tara, a female Buddha who is the embodiment of fearless wisdom and swift compassion. By relying upon her and engaging in her profound meditation practice, we can learn to let go of our limited, repetitive ways of thinking about ourself and our world, identify with our pure potential, and discover that we too can become a deeply peaceful, fearless liberator – a force for good in a profoundly troubled world. This empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a deep connection with Buddha Tara’s enlightened mind. Everyone is welcome.
