New Zealand Festival
Buddha Maitreya Empowerment & Teachings on Loving Kindness

At this year’s NZ Kiwi Festival we welcome Gen-la Kelsang Jampa to grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, whom is the embodiment of the loving kindness of all Buddhas.

It is said that when Buddha Shakyamuni’s influence has disappeared from our world, emanations of Maitreya will appear, touching the hearts of human beings, teaching kindness and generosity to all. Gradually, through his kindness, wisdom, and blessings, all people will come to love and respect one another.

By receiving the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya we awaken our own potential to develop the universal love of a Buddha. Following the empowerment, Gen-la Jampa will give practical and inspiring teachings on how cherishing others and increasing our love leads to a peaceful, happy mind in our daily life. With peace and love in our minds, our whole world transforms and our relationships with others become more rewarding and long-lasting. Ultimately, by developing the completely pure love of a Buddha we can fulfil our deepest wishes for lasting meaning
and happiness.

‘The mind that cherishes others is the supreme good heart. Keeping such a good heart will result only in happiness for our self and all those around us.’ – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
