Saturday, May 19th
In this very special event, Kadam Heather will grant the empowerment*of Buddha Shakyamuni,the founder of Buddhism in this world and give commentary to the “Liberating Prayer”.
*What is an Empowerment?
Empowerments are special ritual ceremonies in which we receive a personal introduction to a particular Buddha and receive their blessings so that we may attain the same qualities as them in the future. Once we have received the blessings of a particular Buddha it is like they become a special, close friend and if we rely upon them we will receive their help and protection. If you have never been to an empowerment before, don’t worry, you will be guided in what to do during the actual ceremony. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Lunch: (Provided for Everybody) 1:00-2:15pm
Break (tea, coffee, snacks provided) 3:45-4:15pm
$60 for entire event including food
