The Peace of Emptiness

The Empowement of Prajnaparamita

Great Mother Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who is the manifestation of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive wisdom blessings directly from Prajnaparamita’s enlightened mind, empowering us to experience deep healing and real inner progress. By receiving her blessings in this empowerment, we can deepen our experience of ultimate truth and come closer to a lasting solution to all our problems.

Guided Retreat on the Heart Sutra

Following the empowerment, Gen Samten will guide a retreat on the Heart Sutra. This text is revered worldwide as a supreme method to solve our problems and find true happiness. Even a slight experience of its meaning will completely transform our life. • Discover the peace of emptiness • Learn to relate to everything as a dream, an illusion, and a rainbow • Learn a special method for overcoming difficulties and adversities in daily life
