The Blessing Empowerment of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden with Gen Kelsang Rigpa

Friday, September 16th 7:30-9pm Introduction to the Dharma Protector
Saturday, September 17th 10am-5pm Empowerment, Teachings & Practice
 

An empowerment is a special guided meditation and ceremony whereby we are connected to and receive special blessings from an enlightened being. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being whose function is to protect our practice of Dharma. At the International Summer Festival in 2006, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso said: “Je Tsongkhapa himself appears as Dorje Shugden to prevent his doctrine of the Ganden Oral Lineage from degenerating by pacifying obstacles, gathering necessary conditions and bestowing powerful blessings upon practitioners of these teachings.If we continually rely upon Dorje Shugden with faith, he will care for us like a mother cares for her child. He will guide us to the correct path, or liberating path, pacify our obstacles, gather necessary conditions for us and bestow upon us powerful blessings.”

Everyone is welcome to this special event.
