With the completion of the Manjushri Sand Mandala, the Gaden Shartse monks now perform the Manjushri Empowerment Ceremony, during which the mantra and powerful energy of Manjushri are transmitted to the attendees.
Manjushri is a wisdom deity of Tibetan Buddhism, or a Bodhisattva (Great Being) who wields a powerful sword used to cut through ignorance. There are wrathful and peaceful forms. This empowerment is for a peaceful form. Wisdom helps us see what needs to be done and what is to be abandoned. Through this practice we receive the clear energies to do this.
This ceremony is open to the public and is one of the many ceremonies, talks and other presentations on Tibetan culture and Tibetan Buddhism the Gaden Shartse monks will be giving during their two week residency at the Diamond Springs Center for Healing.
