BLESSING EMPOWERMENT OF WHITE TARA

8th – 10th November

 

During this very special weekend, Gen Pagpa will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara, an enlightened being who bestows long life, good fortune and wisdom. We need a long life to complete our spiritual practice, we need wisdom to free ourselves and others from our daily pain and problems, and we need good fortune or positive energy to achieve a long-lasting experience of inner peace and happiness.
Everyone welcome.
