A CELEBRATION OF DHARMA IN BRASIL

The magnificent Temple for World Peace in Brasil recently hosted the Brasilian Dharma Celebration.

400 people gathered to enjoy a truly wonderful weekend in a magnificent setting.

Gen Kelsang Mudita, the National Spiritual Director of Brasil, granted the empowerment of Buddha Prajnaparamita. She explained that because Prajnaparamita is a manifestation of the perfection of wisdom she helps us overcome our inner and outer obstacles. We must understand, she said, that what makes us suffer is our ignorance and with the special blessings of Prajnaparamita we will be able to dispel the darkness of this ignorance from our mind and develop a wisdom that is a true cause of happiness.

The introduction to the weekend was given by Gen Togden, the meditations were led by Gen Drime and the retreat was guided by Kadam Milo.

The whole event was a wonderful illustration of the great kindness and compassionate vision of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
