‘Maitreya is the manifestation of all the Buddha’s realization of loving kindness. His function is to guide us along the stages of the path to enlightenment.’
– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
During this special event, we will receive teachings on developing loving kindness as well as the blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya. Through receiving this empowerment we will draw closer to this enlightened being and awaken our own potential to develop the universal love of a Buddha. Maitreya’s inspiring blessings will help us improve our ability to care for and love others, which is the source of all our happiness and the best protection from problems and pain. Eventually, through receiving these blessings continually, we will come to know the most powerful love, the love that wishes for everyone to attain the complete and lasting happiness of enlightenment, and moves us to work joyfully and tirelessly towards that goal.
