THE THREE ASPECTS OF LOVE
Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of Loving Kindness
Ontario Dharma Celebration 2020
December 4-6 | With Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab
About the Celebration
In the dedication prayers from the Yoga of Buddha Maitreya it says:
Through my meditating on the Three Aspects of Love,
May I always care for all living beings without exception,
Be free from outer and inner obstructing maras
And attain the state of the Buddha of Loving Kindness
The three aspects of love are affectionate love, cherishing love and wishing love. Everyone needs the good heart of loving kindness because it solves all problems and fulfils all our wishes. Therefore we are extremely fortunate now having a rare opportunity to receive this special blessing empowerment.
Gen-la Khyenrab will give clear explanations on how to practically improve our good heart through engaging in the regular practice of Buddha Maitreya self-generation according to instructions of the Ganden Oral Lineage, the very essence of Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition.
As a result we will find our life temporarily becoming more joyful, and ultimately we can experience the permanent peace of mind called nirvana. How wonderful! Everybody is welcome to join this special online event.
