Saturday, February 7th & Sunday, February 8th
Opening Our Wisdom Eye. Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who represents the perfection of wisdom. “Prajna” is the Sanskrit word for wisdom, and “paramita” is the Sanskrit word for “perfection”. She is often referred to as the “Great Mother”, since the perfection of wisdom 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 and 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 Buddha nature.
During this special weekend event, Gen Chogden will grant the empowerment of The Great Mother Prajnaparamita. Through the blissful guided meditation of the empowerment, we will receive the Great Mother’s wisdom blessings and move closer towards our own enlightened nature.
