A Tantric empowerment is like a blissful guided meditation that helps us to essentially connect to our Buddha nature so we can discover through our own meditation that we have Buddha nature – we have the potential for great peace, great happiness, great love, great compassion. The potential for enlightenment exists within each and every one of us. But our big problem is that we don’t have an image of that, we don’t really have a vision for that in our modern society. So what an empowerment does is it guides you to connecting to that Buddha nature and then from that perspective we imagine becoming a Buddha.
