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 Lhadron will grant the empowerment of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri showering our mind with illuminating wisdom.

“O Compassionate one, with the light of your wisdom,
Please dispel the darkness of confusion from my mind,
And illuminate my mind with the confidence and wisdom
To realize the teachings, commentaries, and texts.”

When wisdom is in our hearts, our mind is very clear, confident, and free from disturbing thoughts. Wisdom is like an inner spiritual guide and helps us to act thoughtfully, skillfully, and meaningfully in daily life. Since all our negative minds are based upon the opposite of wisdom – confusion – everyone needs to develop wisdom.
