Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is the manifestation of the compassion of all Buddhas; the compassion of all Buddhas appears as Avalokiteshvara, therefore he is the synthesis of all Buddhas. In this special blessing ceremony our National Spiritual Director, Gen Kelsang Rabten, will take us on a guided meditative journey. Our hearts will be connected to enlightened love, compassion and powerful inspiration.

Following the blessing ceremony, for the first time in Australia, Gen Rabten will teach “Essential Insights into the Avalokiteshvara Sadhana” from Venerable Geshe-la’s latest release, The Mirror of Dharma with Additions.

The benefits of engaging in the practice of this sadhana are immeasurable. Through sincerely practising these instructions, we can first solve our own daily problems by controlling our desire, anger and ignorance, and then with this ability we can lead people throughout the world to the correct spiritual path through which they can find the real meaning of human life.

This year’s national Kadampa holiday is an opportunity not to be missed. Fresh teachings, like-minded company, and powerful blessings will leave us rested and spiritually rejuvenated. Everyone is welcome.
