Becoming Enlightened

Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara Empowerment & Teachings on Buddha Nature with Kadam Kyle

April 2-4, 2021

with Kadam Kyle Davis

This retreat will be available to watch through Friday, April 9th @Midnight EST

You can and one day will become enlightened. Enlightenment is each and every person’s indestructible potential– an inner light of wisdom that bestows happiness on others. This potential is called your Buddha Nature. 

Kadam Kyle will be granting the empowerment of Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara, the embodiment of compassion. Compassion is a vital part of your Buddha nature, and receiving an empowerment of Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara will start to awaken this compassionate nature.

The biggest obstacle to becoming enlightened is feeling it is far away. Through immersing yourself in the illuminating teachings on Buddha Nature, you will connect to a heartfelt, confident understanding that you will become enlightened. From this confident and encouraged insight, your spiritual journey will be one of joy and realistic optimism.


Full Event: $80  ·  Friday Intro: $10  ·  Saturday (Empowerment day): $60  ·  Sunday: $20
