“I am deeply moved and inspired by Geshe-la’s teachings and special blessings of Buddha Avalokiteshvara that we are receiving from Gen-la Khyenrab, Gen Sanden, and Kelsang Khacho (and tomorrow, Gen Rigden), brought to us with extraordinary heart and wisdom.
Gen Sanden’s words during the introduction were beautifully sincere, calling upon us, reminding us, to “gather our forces” and “marshal the five forces to help us accomplish our wishes” to increase and develop our compassion, our Bodhichitta, and put this force (these forces) behind our Dharma practice.
Like Gen-la Khyenrab emphasized today, so clearly and directly (before the empowerment), that without compassion for all living beings, our Dharma practice is limited; it needs the power of compassion, the final and most powerful force of Buddha Avalokiteshvara, to take us to the final goal – that of enlightenment – for the benefit of all living beings without exception. How sublime!
This is truly a celebration of how fortunate we are. I feel very blessed – and we are very blessed – with love, Valerie”
