Enlightened Wisdom for Modern Times
The Blessing Empowerment of the Great Mother Prajnaparamita
11-13 March 2022
Update (16 Feb 2022): Please note that this event is only available online. However, it will be possible to watch the festival on a large TV-screen at the Kadampa Meditation Centers in Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Tampere or Gothenburg together with other practitioners.
During this special event, guest teacher and Deputy Spiritual Director of the NKT, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Prajnaparamita – a female Buddha who is the manifestation of the perfection of wisdom of all Buddhas.
The empowerment offers a beautiful opportunity to receive special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature. With wisdom we develop beneficial understandings and intentions that will lead us to inner peace, freedom and the pure happiness of enlightenment so that we become a truly beneficial being in this world.
Gen la Jampa will also share a special method to overcome obstacles and dangers by reciting the Heart Sutra and meditating on emptiness (the ultimate nature of reality), practiced in conjunction with a brief yet powerful practice called The Great Mother.
The Nordic Festival of Kadampa Buddhism is open to everyone. Enjoy an inspiring weekend with people from all over the Nordic region, developing inner peace through the practices of meditation and modern Buddhism. Come away refreshed, energized and inspired – equipped with powerful inner tools to transform your everyday life into a joyful and meaningful spiritual journey. In this way, you can bring happiness to both yourself and to those that you live and work with.
The Nordic Festival offers a rare opportunity to receive practical and inspiring teachings from the internationally renowned Teacher and Buddhist monk, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa.
The festival will be taught in clear and easy to understand English.
