Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration 2018 – Friday March 16 – Sunday March 18. Registration is open!

This year, Kadam Morten will grant the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and give teachings on “The Power of Love… To Heal Our Heart and World.”  

The Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration is an annual regional Kadampa Buddhist celebration in Baltimore that includes teachings, a blessing ceremony called an empowerment, and guided meditations.  An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive powerful blessings that enrich our body, speech, and mind.

There is no greater power than love to heal our own heart of hurt and anger from the past, to vastly improve all our relationships and to bring true happiness into our world. We all naturally have love within our heart. Using the special methods of Buddhist meditation, Kadam Morten will guide us to harness its amazing healing power.

All  Buddhas’ realization of loving kindness manifests as Buddha Maitreya.  Through the power of his special blessings, we can develop the confidence to maintain a warm and friendly feeling towards everyone we meet. Since his function is to guide us to enlightenment, if we rely upon him with faith we will gain all the realizations of Kadam Lamrim, fulfilling our deepest wish for lasting happiness.
