The Liberating Path ~ Weekend Course with Jampel Centre’s Resident Teacher, James Baskerville
Buddha Shakyamuni is the founder of Buddhism. This blessing empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation that helps us to make a special connection with Buddha and receive his powerful blessings so that we can experience supreme inner peace. This empowerment is suitable for everyone.
James will then give a commentary to the Liberating Prayer, through which we will understand how Buddha’s love for all beings without exception can protect us from our inner problems such as anger, and is the source of all happiness.
