This empowerment is a transformative guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Avalokiteshvara's enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings we can swiftly actualize our own potential and gain the confidence we need to progress along the spiritual path. Through the power of our compassion we can help to bring enormous relief to our suffering world. Everyone is welcome!

“An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Who is Buddha Avalokiteshvara? Buddha Avalokiteshvara is the embodiment of the compassion of all enlightened beings. Through sincerely engaging in Buddha Avalokiteshvara's short meditation practice we can gradually awaken our compassionate Buddha nature. We can solve our own daily problems by controlling our desirous attachment, anger and ignorance, and then from this state we can bring so much extraordinary benefit to our family, our community and our world.
