The Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva
6th – 8th November 2020
The South African Dharma Celebration is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy spiritual teachings and meditations with like-minded friends. During this special weekend event, international teacher Gen-la Kunsang, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva.
The function of Buddha Vajrasattva is to purify our body, speech and mind and our impure actions, through which we can become a completely pure being our self.
During this weekend event we make a deep connection with this enlightened being and receive his special blessings. This enables us to purify the effect of our past negativities which are obstacles to true happiness and peace of mind.
The SADC will be streamed online. There is also an option to view the online festival at the Centres in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Limited seating is available due to the need for social distancing. Please contact your local Centre directly with your online booking receipt if you’re interested to attend at the Centre.

“Through receiving the powerful blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva continually we can completely purify and transform our mind. All impure appearances, impure environments and impure enjoyments of body and mind will cease for us and we will experience everything as pure. We will become a completely pure being”.
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
Internationally renowned Buddhist nun and senior teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition, Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang will grant this empowerment and give commentary to the practice.
