Empowerment & Teachings on
Four-Armed Golden Red Manjushri

Raising Windhorse Retreat
May 28-30 (Saturday-Monday)
Padma Samye Ling
Webcast Teachings on Golden Red Manjushri
with In-Person Empowerment on Golden Red Manjushri with special ritual blessing ceremony

Manjushri is the embodiment of the primordial wisdom of all the buddhas, emanated in countless forms for the benefit of all sentient beings. Those who receive empowerment and teaching of Manjushri will dispel ignorance with continuous bursts of wisdom and compassion, and awaken to the innate Buddha wisdom. In each of the nine yanas, the Buddha gave instruction regarding this great being. This particular teaching is a renowned terma treasure discovered by the great Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche, who himself is considered to be an emanation of Manjushri.
Weekend activities will include raising new prayer flags around all of Padma Samye Ling, as well as performing smoke offering ceremonies with Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche.
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche specifically ordered Mahakala prayer flags to raise up at PSL and PBC Centers!
