What is an Empowerment?
An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we connect to a Buddha’s enlightened mind, in this case Dorje Shugden’s enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings, our own potential for wisdom, love, and spiritual power grows as we gain the confidence and conditions we need to make progress on the spiritual path. Through the power of Dorje Shugden’s protection, blessings and special care we can definitely realize the greatest meaning of this precious human life.
Who is Dorje Shugden?
Dorje Shugden is the Dharma Protector. He is a manifestation of all Buddhas’ wisdom and compassion. He is our supreme spiritual friend, protecting our personal experience of Dharma, and helping to transform the conditions of our life into the spiritual path. He is a powerful being who helps us in ways both seen and unseen so that we can become the confident, positive and beneficial person we wish to be.
