South West Dharma Celebration

April 27th, 2015 | Posted by web admin in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

12th to 14th June 2015 in Plymouth, Devon.

With Kadam Bridget Hayes


Everybody is welcome to attend the first regional Dharma Celebration for the South West, held in Plymouth, Devon.

During this special weekend celebration Kadam Bridget Heyes will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha White Tara. White Tara is a female enlightened being whose function is to bestow long life, good fortune and wisdom. An empowerment is a special blessing ceremony in which we make a connection with a particular Buddha so we can receive inspiration to heal our mind and awaken our pure nature.

Through receiving this empowerment and engaging in the practice of White Tara we shall make a strong connection with her enlightened energy. As a result we shall naturally be protected, increase our good fortune and wisdom. It is said that living beings receive Tara’s blessings as swiftly as the wind moves because she is the manifestation of the wind element of all the Buddhas.

Kadam Bridget will also offer practical advice on how to integrate Buddha’s teachings into our modern, busy lives so that we can develop our wisdom and compassion and fulfil our wish for a happy, peaceful and meaningful life.
