About the Weekend

At this special weekend event, open to everyone, Buddhist nun Kelsang Lhachog will grant the blessing empowerment of Dorje Shugden and explain how his special meditation practice will enable us to avert the outer and inner obstacles that interfere with our happiness and prevent us from attaining spiritual realisations. 

Over the weekend, Lhachog will also explain how to transform daily adversities into opportunities for growth and development, overcome fear and learn how it’s possible to make progress on the path to happiness no matter what difficulties you may encounter.

What is an Empowerment?

An empowerment is a special guided meditation where we connect with a particular Buddha and receive their inspiring blessings. Through a Buddha’s blessings we ripen our potential to attain spiritual realizations but we also make a special connection with that Buddha and strengthen their ability to guide us on the spiritual path.

Who is Dorje Shugden?

Dorje Shugden is a wisdom Buddha whose special function is to avert the outer and inner obstacles that interfere with our happiness and prevent us from making spiritual progress. By relying upon Dorje Shugden sincerely, we will overcome obstacles to our practice, increase our wisdom and develop a powerful, strong and fearless mind. Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector who will help us to transform difficulties into the spiritual path and arrange all the necessary conditions we need for success in our spiritual activities.
