with Kadam Morten
Wisdom is a virtuous intelligent mind that sees through the superficial veneer of things to the truth. It is a mind that aligns us with reality, thereby liberating us from ignorance, the source of all our suffering. How can we develop this mind? By tuning in to the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. When we open ourself to receiving Manjushri’s blessings, our mind is empowered to experience real insight into the truth of how things exist.
The empowerment ceremony is a blissful guided meditation transmitted over centuries that draws us into the clear wisdom energy of the enlightened mind itself. During the commentary, Kadam Morten will explain how we can maintain our connection to the Buddha of Wisdom through Heart Jewel, the main practice at our Center. He will also give commentary to the brief prayer titled, Praise to Manjushri.
