Empowerment of 1000 Armed Avalokiteshvara

Fear, anxiety, worry and unhappiness exist within us, within our mind; they are unpleasant sensations, which are part of the mind.
Buddha taught that by controlling and purifying our mind, we can stop them once and for all and experience a heart without fear. A heart of compassion and wisdom able to face our challenges with inner peace and develop the capacity to deeply benefit others.

At this event we will have precious teachings and meditations and a special ceremony in which monk Gen Rigden will grant the empowerment of Avalokiteshvara of a Thousand Arms, the Buddha of Compassion.
By receiving his protection and blessings we will generate that fearless heart and move swiftly on our spiritual path to achieve the permanent inner peace of enlightenment.

Everyone is welcome!

Gen Kelsang Rigden is the resident teacher at Kadampa Temple Sintra and its branches.
He is a monk who, with his example of closeness, sense of humor and clarity in expounding the teachings, encourages us to practice meditation and to apply Buddha’s advice in our lives with sincerity.
