About the course 


Je Tsongkhapa is a manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas. We can awaken our inner wisdom by receiving Je Tsongkhapa’s blessings. Developing our own wisdom is one of the most beneficial things we can do for ourselves and others. The empowerment itself takes the form of a blissful guided meditation through which we receive a Buddha’s inspiring blessings. The Blessings of enlightened beings empower us to develop all our good qualities to unimaginable levels and to overcome obstacles within. 


An empowerment is a guided tantric meditation that harnesses wisdom, imagination, and the power of enlightened beings to connect us to pure worlds and pure experiences. This empowerment includes teachings and blissful guided meditations through which we connect with a Buddha and receive his or her special blessings. It also awakens our potential for powerful spiritual experiences and realizations. 


Receiving the empowerment of the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa will connect us to a powerful source of wisdom that will sustain us throughout our spiritual life. 

During this empowerment, we will make a heart connection with Je Tsongkhapa and learn a beautiful meditation practice called Heart Jewel. This is an important practice that Venerable Geshe Kelsang has always encouraged us to develop as our daily practice. Through Heart Jewel practice, we can develop the three qualities of wisdom, compassion, and spiritual power. This is the best gift we can receive and the best gift we can give to our world. 

In the commentary, Gen Leksang will explain the practice of Heart Jewel. He will show how we can use this simple practice in our daily life to easily tap into a profound source of positive energy, love, and wisdom whenever we wish. 

There will also be an optional one day retreat on Heart Jewel practice on Sunday 15th December 10am-4pm.
