Time & Location

Sep 23, 2023, 11:00 AM – Sep 24, 2023, 4:30 PM

Oak Park, 13 Harrison St, Oak Park, IL 60304, USA


An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive a Buddha’s inspiring blessings, heal our mind, and place a special potential for profound spiritual development within our mind.

On Saturday, Gen Zamling will grant the empowerment of the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa, connecting us to a powerful source of wisdom that will sustain us throughout our spiritual life. During this empowerment we will also make a special connection with Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka, a particular aspect of Je Tsongkhapa, through which we can make swift and easy progress along the spiritual path to Enlightenment. Gen Zamling will also provide explanation of how we can rely upon the wisdom, compassion, and spiritual power of Je Tsongkhapa through the practice of Heart Jewel.

On Sunday, we have a special opportunity to engage in a guided retreat to gain deeper, personal experience of the instructions and meditations.  Together, this weekend provides an ideal opportunity to increase your wisdom, compassion, and spiritual power. Absolutely everyone is welcome!
