This weekend saw three empowerments in South America, with Gen-la Dekong online from Manjushri KMC granting teachings and empowerments on Je Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden. Here is a report on the first - the Argentina Festival.
"At this wonderful Dharma Festival we received the empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa from Gen-la Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU.
"Through the great kindness of our Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, all of us united from different parts of Argentina and Uruguay carry Guru Tsongkhapa inside our hearts where he will stay forever. What a wonderful gift!
"The next day Gen-la granted the empowerment of Dorje Shugden. Two empowerments in one Festival - how fortunate!
"Through the blessings and protection of Dorje Shugden, we can achieve whatever spiritual goal we set out to accomplish.
"If we trust him sincerely, he will help us bring our intellectual knowledge of Dharma in general and Kadam Dharma in particular, into our heart and we will achieve realisations quickly.
"Gen-la encouraged us to do Heart Jewel practice every day with faith, pure intention, joy and gratitude."
