TEACHINGS

Join hundreds of practitioners from the NE joining together to receive the empowerment of Avalokiteshvara and teachings on compassion. There is a massive difference between an intellectual understanding of the teachings and experiential understanding. Experiential understanding transforms our life, the way we think, and the way we treat people. Experience is crucial and meditation will allow us to gain this experience. It is not enough to just understand Buddhism–we want to truly change. Kadam Morten will give teachings on how to do this in conjunction with explanations of relying on Buddha Avalokiteshvara.

Buddhist-TeachingsAvalokiteshvara is the Buddha of compassion.

Empowerments create the opportunity for us to receive extraordinary wisdom blessings to enable us to build our connection to enlightened beings who provide us with tremendous assistance on the spiritual path.
