On this special day Gen Pagpa will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara, an enlightened being whose function is to bestow long life, good fortune and wisdom. We need a long life to complete our spiritual practice, we need wisdom to free ourselves and others from our daily problems and suffering, and we need good fortune or positive energy to achieve a long-lasting experience of inner peace and happiness.
By receiving the White Tara empowerment and engaging in her practice we will make a strong connection with a wise and compassionate friend and actualise our potential for enlightenment. Gen Pagpa is the Resident Teacher of Tushita KMC. He has studied and practised Kadampa Buddhism for more than 20 years under the guidance of his Spiritual Teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
