About this event

Join us for one of the most joyful events in the KMC Edinburgh calendar – the Empowerment of Buddha Manjushri, the Wisdom Buddha. Wisdom is such a rare commodity in these modern times. We need wisdom because nothing else is healing our problems. We can see this, in our lives and in our world. So this empowerment is an occasion to rejoice.

From Buddha to his disciple, Manjushri, to Je Tsongkhapa to our own Spiritual Guide venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche these wisdom teachings have been passed down through the centuries. This unbroken lineage is our own spiritual ancestry. It is like a priceless heirloom handed down through time to our modern world.

The empowerment is the special ceremony through which we can enter that lineage ourselves. We receive special advice, the blessings of our Spiritual Guide and make a personal connection with Manjushri. It gives strength to all our spiritual practices and in particular the wisdom meditations associated with Manjushri. Through this we can rapidly experience the wisdom and spiritual power of this unsurpassed lineage for ourselves.

The empowerment will be guided by Gen-la Kunsang in a very clear, light and easy-to-follow way. It will be followed by an introduction to the practice of Manjushri. On Sunday there will be an opportunity to learn the practise of Heart Jewel, the daily wisdom meditation of our own tradition.

Everyone is very welcome!
