The Blessing Empowerment of

Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa

Saturday, May 9 | 11AM–4:30PM

Join us for a special event to receive powerful blessings from the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa, an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, and Vajrapani with Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Chokyi.

As our Spiritual Guide, Je Tsongkhapa patiently teaches us everything we need for our spiritual development. By practicing his teachings sincerely, we can pacify all our negative karma and obstacles and increase our merit, life span, and Dharma realizations.

His appearance 700 years ago was predicted by Buddha himself. Since that time, he has lead countless followers to enlightenment—from the initial step of entering into a spiritual practice through to the ultimate attainment of Buddhahood—a state of peace and happiness where all our actions benefit every living being without exception.

The Empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we receive powerful blessings. The Commentary reflects on the many good qualities of Je Tsongkhapa followed by a guided meditation of his practice, The Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa.

This event is led by Gen Kelsang Chokyi, Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher at AKBC. Suitable for all levels of experience. 

The commentary will be based on the books Heart Jewel and The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra written by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

We will be using Heart Jewel sadhana and Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s Long Life Prayer (chanted prayer booklets) for the last session. Prayer booklets in paperback and ebook form are available through Tharpa.com.
