The Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration is a very special annual event that connects practitioners around the Mid-Atlantic region. This incredible weekend of practical teachings, powerful meditations, and energizing empowerment is an event not to be missed. If you are new to Buddhism, the Celebration weekend provides a perfect opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and experience of Buddha’s teachings. Everyone is welcome.
At this year’s Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration, Kadam Morten will teach how to become a modern-day Bodhisattva and he will give the Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Avalokiteshvara. Avalokiteshvara is the Buddha of compassion, the embodiment of enlightened compassion. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a direct connection with this sublime Buddha, and receive powerful blessings.
According to Buddha, the best life is that of a Bodhisattva, a person who is progressing towards the actualization of their highest potential in order to be of real benefit to everyone. Kadam Morten will give a commentary to the practice of the Buddha of compassion, focusing in particular on the development of bodhichitta. Many people might feel that such an attainment is beyond us, but Kadam Morten will show how through skillfully applying Buddha’s teachings, we can all become Bodhisattvas, and our lives can become breathtakingly meaningful, beneficial, and joyful.
