The Way of Wisdom
Prajnaparamita Empowerment &
Teachings on the Three Principal Aspects of the Path
Friday 26 November – Wednesday 1 December

With wisdom we develop beneficial understandings and intentions that will lead us to inner peace, freedom and the pure happiness of enlightenment.

The word “prajna” means wisdom and “paramita” means perfection. Buddha Prajnaparamita is therefore a manifestation of the Perfection of Wisdom. She is called “The Great Mother” because all Buddhas are born from this wisdom which is associated with deep compassion for all living beings.

During this special event, Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will grant the empowerment of The Great Mother Prajnaparamita. An empowerment is a special transmission of insight and experience – a beautiful guided meditation during which we receive the blessings of a particular enlightened being. Meeting Prajnaparamita and receiving her empowering blessings will ignite our own inner light of wisdom, so that we become a truly beneficial being in this world.

Following the empowerment, Gen-la will give teachings on The Three Principal Aspects of the Path, a timeless text composed by Je Tsongkhapa  and carefully translated by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in his book The Mirror of Dharma with Additions. By taking these teachings to heart, we can realise Buddha’s ultimate view, and become an enlightened being ourself.
