Removing Negativity: Vajrasattva Empowerment Day
In-Person @Burnley KBC & Livestreamed Online
Sat 3 April 2021 10am – 4.30pm
(available for 48 hours after on catch up)
This empowerment, with introduction and teachings, is a wonderful opportunity to start relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, and learn a special meditation to free ourself from all of our negative karma.
We spend all our time and energy trying to avoid problems 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 karma we have created in the past through our own harmful actions.
By relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, and practising a special meditation, we can free ourselves from all our negative karma. As a result, all our experiences will be positive; we will have a peaceful, pure mind; and will easily remove obstacles to our spiritual development.
The cost for the empowerment day only is £25 (Members £20).
This blessing empowerment will be granted by Gen Kelsang Päljin, the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre, and the teachings on Friday evening and Sunday morning will also be given by him.
Gen Päljin is also the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 20 years’ experience of practising and teaching Buddhist meditation.
