The blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya

Maitreya is the manifestation of all the Buddhas’ realization of loving kindness. The function of this Buddha is to bestow the realization of loving kindness – the realization of affectionate love, wishing love, cherishing love, the supreme heart of bodhichitta and so forth – and also the realizations of Kadam Lamrim through which we can solve our own and others’ problems and fulfil our own and others’ wishes.

By receiving the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya you will create a special connection with this loving and compassionate Buddha which will enable you to develop profound inner peace and happiness.

The empowerment will be granted by Andrew Crompton, Resident Teacher at KMC Slovenia.

The course will be in English: translation into Slovene will be available if required.

I believe that this empowerment will be very important for your inner peace, your mental peace or peaceful mind. Having mental peace is very important for our daily happiness. If our mind is peaceful we are really happy, but if our mind is not peaceful we are not happy. This is very clear.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition

What is an empowerment?

An empowerment is a special ritual meditation in which we are introduced to a particular Buddha and create a special connection with him or her. Each Buddha has the power to help us accomplish a particular attainment. Buddha Maitreya, for example, is a manifestation of the loving kindness of all enlightened beings and has a special power to help us develop a kind and loving heart. Buddha Prajnaparamita is the manifestation of the perfection of wisdom of all enlightened beings and has a special power to help us develop wisdom. Buddha Avalokiteshvara helps us to develop compassion, and so forth.

At an empowerment, therefore, we learn a special meditation and also receive blessings which empower us to practise that meditation. Subsequently, with regular practice, we will be able to gain authentic realizations of loving kindness, wisdom, compassion and so on. In this way we will be able to solve our everyday problems and make progress on the path to enlightenment.
