We all have the potential for enlightenment. To fulfill this potential we need to develop a profound wisdom that realizes the true nature of things and to receive the inspiring blessings of the enlightened beings, the Buddhas.
Prajnaparamita is the female Buddha of profound wisdom. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive Prajnaparamita’s wisdom blessings.

During this special weekend event, Gen Pagpa will give teachings on the nature of wisdom, grant the empowerment of Prajnaparamita, and give commentary to the brief and powerful practice of Prajnaparamita self-generation, which comes from Buddha’s tantric teachings, the quick path to enlightenment. Applying these methods in our daily life allows us to actualize the enlightened qualities of wisdom, love, joy and compassion in our own lives.
