Pure • Blessing Empowerment of Vajrasattva • Weekend Course & Retreat • 25-28 Nov
Sat 25 Nov - Tue 28 Nov

Monbulk: Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia
25 McCarthy Rd

We spend almost all our time and energy trying to avoid problems and experience happiness by making changes to our external world. However, our unhappiness and difficulties are not caused by the external world but are the result of the negative actions, or ‘karma’, we engaged in in the past. By relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, and practising his special meditation we can free ourselves from all of our negative karma.

This empowerment is a series of blissful guided meditations in which we will make a personal connection with Buddha Vajrasattva. Following the empowerment, Gen Kelsang Dornying will give commentary on how to remove our negative karma by engaging in the meditation of Vajrasattva. By making this connection and practising the meditations we will always be close to a powerful friend and ally; all our experiences will become positive, we will have a peaceful, pure mind and we will draw closer to actualizing our full potential for permanent happiness.

Following the blessings of the empowerment weekend, Gen Dornying will guide a retreat on the meditation of Vajrasattva, helping us to cleanse our mind of all our negativities and enjoy the natural purity that lies within. Stay and enjoy a few days of stillness in the idyllic retreat setting of KMC Australia. Everybody is welcome.

The Teacher

The teacher of this course is Gen Kelsang Dornying. Gen Dornying is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia and teaches with a warmth and humility that is naturally inspiring.
