Hello, Friends of the Dharmachakra Buddhist Center:

The Public Talk and Blessing Ceremony for our new space, led by US National Spiritual Director Gen Kelsang Rigpa, was beautiful, inspiring and well-attended.  And we had lots of good food!

Thanks to all of you who were able to attend, your presence made our celebration much more meaningful and we hope that it was meaningful for you too.

According to Buddha all diseases and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our delusions such as anger. Normally these delusions feel deeply ingrained, but through connecting to Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind, and heal ourselves of these inner diseases.

This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. .

It would be a great help for Empowerment planning if you could preregister as soon as possible.

Preregistration is required
