About the event
3:45-4:30pm Treasury of Wisdom
“Homage to Venerable Guru Protector Manjushri. At your heart you hold a Dharma text, showing that you see all ultimate and conventional truths with a wisdom that has dispelled the clouds of the two obstructions and radiates like the sun.” - Praise to Manjushri
An empowerment is a very special blessing ceremony that functions to heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature. Each empowerment introduces us to a particular enlightened Deity, their meditations and mantras. The particular enlightened Deity to which we will be introduced in this empowerment is Manjushri. Manjushri is the Wisdom Buddha, the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddhas. By relying upon Manjushri, we will naturally increase our wisdom.
Wisdom is a virtuous, intelligent mind that understands its object unmistakenly and functions to dispel deluded doubt. Since it is a virtuous mind, wisdom always causes happiness; it never causes suffering or problems. Wisdom is like an inner Teacher that we carry in our hearts, and like a Protector that protects us from engaging in wrong actions and having to experience their unpleasant results. With wisdom, our mind is always balanced and comfortable.
