New Zealand Festival
Vajrasattva Empowerment and Teachings on Removing Obstacles & Negative Karma

At this year’s NZ Kiwi Festival we welcome Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab to grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva, whom is the embodiment of enlightened purification.

We spend almost all our time and energy trying to avoid problems and experience happiness by changing the world around us. However, our unhappiness and difficulties do not come from external things, they are the result of the negative actions, or negative ‘karma’, we have performed in the past. By receiving this purifying blessing and turning inwards for solutions and meaning we embark on a true path to happiness. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation in which we make a personal connection with Guru Vajrasattva. Then, by engaging in the associated meditation practice, our negative karma is dissolved away and we can connect to the endless joy and natural purity that lies within.

‘Through receiving the powerful blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva continually we can completely purify and transform our mind. All impure appearances, impure environments and impure enjoyments of body and mind will cease for us and we will experience everything as pure. We will become a completely pure being.’ – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
