An empowerment provides us with a vision and a sense of what is possible. We imagine a transformation—that in reality—is completely possible. It is suitable for everyone, Buddhist or non-Buddhist. Through correct imagination, wisdom and meditation this empowerment is an opportunity to create a special connection with the enlightened being White Tara who will help us increasing our life, wisdom and good fortune.
Everyone is welcome.
White Tara is a female enlightened being whose function is to bestow long life, wisdom, and good fortune. In this special event, Gen Lekma will grant the blessing empowerment, which is a beautiful guided meditation and explain how by relying upon this special practice we can:
Increase your life span so you can fulfill your spiritual wishes
Increase your wisdom to understand profound Dharma
Increase the causes of good fortune in your life
