Manjushri Empowerment

Teachings on the Holy Secret

May 1 - 3: Empowerment & Teachings | with Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

May 3 - 5: Guided Retreat | with Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

Are self and other really as different as they appear? By realizing the truth of self and other, we will come to believe that we need to dispel others' suffering as we would our own and we need to bring them the happiness we wish for ourself. By learning to cherish others without any selfish concern we will soon attain the ultimate goal of human

life - enlightenment - and become a protector of all beings.

"Thus, whoever wants to swiftly protect

Both themselves and others

Should practice this holy secret

Of exchanging self with others."

~ Shantideva
