Special Event: Manjushri Empowerment

Palyul Changchub Darjyeling Spiritual Director Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche offers the Lion Speech Manjushri Empowerment this morning.  (This special event preempts our usual Sunday Meditation Group meeting.)  At 2 p.m., Khen Rinpoche will continue his teachings on Letter To A Friend, the classic text by the second century Buddhist master, scholar and philosopher Nagarjuna.  The public is invited to all events.  To see the complete schedule for Khen Rinpoche's four-day visit, go to the PCD website.

[NOTE: PCD operates by donations only.  We request an offering of $20 for each session to defray travel costs and other expenses for Rinpoche.  However, no one will be refused entrance for want of money.  PCD is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.]

    Forgive my ignorance, but what was the liquid we all drank from the tea pot shaped item in the beginning? What is the significance in the ceremony?

      The liquid was amrita, which is the drink of the gods, although to those of us with ordinary minds, it had the appearance of ordinary brewed tea. We purify ourselves with it in order to prepare to receive the empowerment.

    Thank you, Chris and Keith, for making this possible. It was a pleasure to see you, and to meet Rinpoche.
    I hope to see you again at one of your weekly meditations.

      Thank you for your kind words, Susan. It was the collective effort of many people that made Rinpoche's visit possible. I'm glad you could come and hope you can attend some of our regular events.
