A HEART OF WISDOM
ABOUT THIS EVENT
An empowerment is an opportunity to make a connection with a particular Buddha. This increases the strength of our spiritual practice and draws us closer to happiness, inner peace.
On this day we will also receive commentary to the Yoga of Great Mother Prajnaparamita. Having received the empowerment we need to receive instructions on this practice so that we can increase our wisdom and compassion. Through this we will be able to solve our own problems and help others to solve their problems.

A SECTION FROM THE NEW HEART OF WISDOM BY GESHE KELSANG GYATSO
Homage to the perfection of wisdom, the Blessed Mother.
The essence of the perfection of wisdom is a wisdom that realizes emptiness directly, associated with the compassionate mind of bodhichitta. With this wisdom, in one single concentration, we can accumulate a great collection of merit and a great collection of wisdom, the main causes of Buddha’s Form Body and Truth Body, respectively. This wisdom will lead us to the attainment of full enlightenment very quickly. It is called the ‘Blessed Mother’ because all the Buddhas of the ten directions are born from this wisdom.
Many people are very intelligent in accomplishing worldly attainments. This intelligence is not wisdom because worldly attainments such as a high position, reputation, wealth and success in business are deceptive. If we die tomorrow, they will disappear tomorrow, and nothing will be left for our future. Wisdom, however, will never deceive us. It is our inner Spiritual Guide, who leads us to the correct path. It is the divine eye through which we can see what we should know, what we should abandon, what we should practise and what we should attain
