The Blessings of Buddha Tara

Arya Tara Blessing Empowerment & Retreat

About This Special Event

Tara is the enlightened mother, Buddha of wisdom and compassion. She possesses the special power to bless our minds and free us swiftly from the inner causes of pain and unhappiness. By relying upon her with strong faith we can find peace and accomplish our final goal – the supreme happiness of enlightenment.

This Empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Buddha Tara, the embodiment of enlightened wisdom and kindness. During the commentary, Gen Jigme will explain the profound tantric practice known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened Buddha ourself. The empowerment will take place in the morning, followed by a commentary in the afternoon.

This course will function as a wonderful introduction to Buddha’s teachings on Tantra, or you can come and enjoy it simply as a blessing. Everyone is welcome.

About Our Teacher

This Blessing Empowerment will be granted by our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Jigme.

Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.
