Empowerments in KMC NC
In the coming year 2021-2022, KMC North Carolina will grant two empowerments and give commentary on the practices. Receiving an Empowerment initiates you to practice the sadhana of the deity, and thereby draw closer to the special qualities of that Deity.
Sat Nov 13, 10-4:30. Blessing Empowerment of Buddha, Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism
Sat Apr 9. 10-4:30. Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, the bestower of profound happiness and love.
