Benefiting Others

“Just as the only way to solve our own problems is to find inner peace, so the only way to help others to solve theirs is to encourage them to engage in spiritual practice and discover their own inner peace. This way of benefiting others is by far the best. If through training our mind we succeed in pacifying – or even completely eliminating – our own anger, for example, we can certainly help others to control theirs. Then our advice will not be mere words, but will have behind it the power of personal experience.”

Excerpt From: Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. “How to Transform Your Life.” iBooks.

Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and Commentary to the Liberating Prayer with Gen Kelsang Tonglam


Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni and Commentary to the Liberating Prayer with Gen Kelsang Tonglam

We are pleased to announce that for the first time in the history of Manila Kadampa Buddhist Centre, it will hold its first empowerment in the Philippines. The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, will be held on April 7, 2018 which is also the founding day of the New Kadampa Tradition.

Buddha Shakyamuni is the founder of Buddhism. For thousands of years Buddha’s teachings have touched the hearts of many transforming their life into one of great meaning and benefit. 

On April 6-8, we have the opportunity to receive the blessing empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni which is a beautiful guided meditation that helps us to make a special connection with Buddha and receive his powerful blessings so that we can experience supreme inner peace. 

After the empowerment, Gen Tonglam will give a commentary to the Liberating Prayer – Praise to Buddha Shakyamuni, through which we will understand how Buddha’s love for all beings without exception can protect us from our inner problems such as anger, and is the source of all happiness. By relying upon this supreme unchanging friend, our life will become a truly blissful and meaningful journey.
