Wisdom for our Modern Lives

Je Tsongkhapa empowerment and teachings

Kadampa Meditation Centre Fraser Valley
Unit 106 – 31581 South Fraser Way
Abbotsford, B.C.

Teacher Gen Kelsang Delek

About the empowerment

An empowerment is beautiful guided meditation through which we receive a Buddha’s inspiring blessings, heal our mental continuum, and awaken our spiritual potential. Gen Delek will grant the empowerment of our Spiritual Guide, Je Tsongkhapa. Modern Kadampa Buddhism originates from Je Tsongkhapa who is an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha, Manjushri. Through this empowerment we make a special connection with our teacher, and learn the special characteristics of his teachings.

Because Je Tsongkhapa is an emanation of Manjushri, we increase our wisdom through receiving his blessings.  Wisdom teaches us what to do and what not to do; it is like an inner Teacher that we carry in our hearts. When we are discouraged, disappointed, or depressed, wisdom lifts our mind and makes us happy; and when we are over-excited or distracted, wisdom calms our mind and reduces our distractions. With wisdom our mind is always balanced and comfortable.

Everyone is welcome to this special event.
