WHY PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT?
In a world where stress, depression and insecurity are increasingly present, we rarely experience lasting happiness and we encounter many obstacles in our lives. If we take Buddha’s advice to heart and integrate it into our lives, we will be able to solve our problems and gradually achieve lasting happiness, a truly peaceful mind and boundless inner strength.
During the Saturday morning ceremony called an ‘Empowerment’, we will receive the inspirational energy of the Buddha of Compassion, 1000-Armed Avalokiteshvara. His function is to awaken in us all, our qualities of love, compassion and wisdom. Gen-la Khyenrab will then teach the practical methods that allow us to develop these qualities on a daily basis with all those around us. Everyone is welcome to this event.
