An Empowerment is a very special blessing ceremony and guided meditation that connects us with this Buddha and heals our mental continuum. Buddha Maitreya is the manifestation of the loving-kindness of all Buddhas. His function is to guide us along the stages of the path to enlightenment.
Through relying on Buddha Maitreya with faith we will receive this Buddha’s special care, and he will bestow upon us the realizations of Kadam Lamrim through which we can solve our own and others’ problems, and fulfil our own and others’ wishes.
