“Developing compassion and wisdom, and helping those in need whenever possible, is the true meaning of human life. By increasing our compassion we come closer to enlightenment and to the fulfilment of our deepest wishes…when our mind is governed by compassion it is always at peace” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in “How to Transform Your Life”.

Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is the manifestation of the compassion of all Buddhas.Kelsang Lekchog will grant the Empowerment of Avalokiteshvara, Buddha of Compassion and give some brief commentary to this practice from The Mirror of Dharma with Additions.

 

What is an empowerment ?

An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Avalokiteshvara and receive powerful blessings. With these blessings we can make quick progress in our practice and develop the pure love and compassion of a Buddha with the ability to help the world.
