With Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Lhachog




We may have an interest in spiritual practice but feel that there are obstacles to our ability to practice effectively.  We can find meditating challenging due to external and internal conditions, we feel we don’t understand the teachings when we read them or we just feel no energy to engage.

Buddha teaches that all of these obstacles are created by our previous actions of rejecting Buddhas teachings.  Although now we want to practice them due to these obstacles we cannot make effective progress no matter how hard we try.

However through the blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva we can begin to remove all these obstacles from our mind.  Just as we clean our body, our house we can begin to clean our mind, removing the negative potentials created in the past. 

“All the Buddhas specifically appear in the form of Vajrasattva to purify the minds of living beings.  For this reason the practice of meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva is superior to other purification practises.” from Oral Instructions of Mahamudra by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

An empowerment is a special ritual meditation practice that enables us to make a special connection with a particular Buddha.  Through this connection we begin to receive blessings that enable us to easily engage in the specific practice.  Therefore through receiving this empowerment and commentary on how to engage in purification practice we can easily overcome all our obstacles to practice and all our negativity in daily life and develop a pure body and mind, the body and mind of a Buddha.
