Empowerment of the Great Mother Prajnaparamita, teachings and retreat on “Opening Our Wisdom Eye”, Sat & Sun Sept 26th-27th (recordings available for a week)

Great Mother Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who is the manifestation of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom.  Her function is to overcome maras – the causes of inner and outer obstacles – and to bestow the realization of the higher perfection of wisdom, which gives birth to the mind of enlightenment.

We all have the potential to become just like Prajnaparamita. To actualize this potential, we need to gain profound wisdom. When we are guided by this, we will travel from joy to joy along our spiritual path, solve our daily problems, and eventually realize our pure potential, or “Buddha nature”.

During this special weekend event, Gen Chogden will grant the empowerment of The Great Mother Prajnaparamita. Through this empowerment, a blissful guided meditation, we will receive the Great Mother’s wisdom blessings and move closer toward our own pure nature.  We will also learn how to practice The Yoga of Great Mother Prajnaparamita so that we can become just like her.
