Blessing Empowerments

Blessing empowerments are precious events at Kadampa Meditation Centre Ottawa, and at other Kadampa Centres around the world. Each year (generally in the spring at KMC Ottawa), we gather together as a community and receive a special blessing empowerment and teachings during an empowerment ceremony. During these ceremonies, we increase our connection with particular Buddhas, such as Buddha Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion.

Empowerments create the opportunity for us to receive extraordinary wisdom blessings which enable us to build our connection to enlightened beings, who provide us with tremendous assistance on the spiritual path. Receiving an empowerment is a transformative experience that fills us with inspiring energy. These ceremonies bestow upon us special blessings which heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature, and help us to realize our true potential: enlightenment.

More information about scheduled empowerment events at Kadampa Meditation Centre Ottawa will be posted on our website and in our newsletter, when available.

The mind has the power to create all pleasant and unpleasant objects.
