ABOUT THE CLASS
Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is a manifestation of all Buddhas' compassion.
By relying sincerely upon Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, and reciting his mantra with strong faith, we will attain a peaceful and happy mind, improve our compassion, and gradually purify our mind of all selfishness and negativity; and ultimately we will attain supreme Buddhahood in Avalokiteshvara’s Pure Land.
This empowerment focuses on the Four-armed aspect of Avalokiteshvara.
Everybody is welcome to attend this special blessing.
The empowerment will be followed by an optional day retreat to gain familiarity with the meditation practice of Avalokiteshvara – click here for more details.
