What is an empowerment?

posted in: MWDC 2020 | 0

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 empowerment blessings will ignite our own inner light of wisdom, so that we become a truly beneficial being in this world.

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.
