Vajrasattva Empowerment & Commentary – In Person Class



Saturday 20th November


At Vajravarahi Kadampa Meditation Centre, 38 West Cliff, Preston, PR1 8HU.


An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a special, heart-felt connection with a particular Buddha and receive their inspiration.

Receiving an empowerment is also the means of connecting with the expansive potential for enlightenment inside our own mind, giving us the energy and wisdom to begin to realise our own natural purity and bliss.

Everyone is welcome to attend to receive these blessings!

Buddha Vajrasattva is a manifestation of all the enlightened beings appearing specifically to help us to purify our negative karma, the source of all our suffering and problems.

By relying upon Buddha Vajrasattva, we have the precious opportunity to purify this negativity, and thus transform our mind and our experience of the world we live in.

As well as granting the empowerment, Gen Pagpa will also explain how to engage in the practice of reciting Vajrasattva’s mantra which is the actual method to purifying ourself, with the aim of achieving the eternal bliss of enlightenment.

Everyone is welcome to receive instructions on this powerful purification practice.

By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enable us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances.

Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency.

If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we shall be able to eradicate from our mind the delusions that are the causes of all our problems and suffering.

In this way, we shall come to experience permanent inner peace.
