The Teachings for the Dzambhala Empowerment. A Dharma Teaching by His Holiness Rimay Gyalten Sogdzin Rinpoche Section 17 The Teachings for the Dzambhala Empowerment Of course, I will try my best to present this Teaching and Empowerment as clearly as possible.

And please accept this Teaching and Empowerment as openly as possible. As usual, here we need to make our selves completely comfortable and relaxed, and just rest in our nature. Of course, if you can, recognize everything as it is. Also, appreciate this auspicious opportunity to connect with the Dharma and receive Dzambhala’s Empowerment.

A Kadampa Buddhist Temple is a special, holy place, where we can receive blessings and powerful imprints on our minds that lead to deep inner peace in the future. Many Kadampa Temples are being built around the world as part of the International Temples Project. Kadampa Buddhist Temples take many forms. Some are custom built according to a special design developed by Geshe Kelsang based on traditional Buddhist architecture, such as the Mother Temple at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre in England and the Temples in New York, and São Paulo. Others are adapted from existing buildings acquired for Kadampa Meditation Centers around the world, such as the Temples in Toronto, Le Mans, Berlin, Zurich, Texas, and Melbourne.

Yet others are incorporated within Hotel Kadampas, such as those in Holland. Many more Temples are planned throughout the world. Whatever form they take, Kadampa Temples are holy places open to everyone to enjoy. Pure land Blessed statues Annual events. Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia. Two people from Buddhism & Australia, Vello Vaartnou and Marju Broder represented Australia at the UC Berkeley PNC conference that was held on 16-18 August, 2016 in Los Angeles.

The PNC was founded at the University of California, Berkeley and it encourages scholars, academic institutions, and universities to collaborate and exchange their academic resources and research expertise. It is really wonderful, that Western Australia which is usually known for the mining boom, was represented by two people who deal with the academic aspect of Buddhism on international level. Until today, Western Australian universities do not have Buddhist studies at all. Prof. Emeritus Lewis Lancaster from UC Berkeley was the key speaker of the first International Conference Buddhism & Australia was very satisfied with the conference, academic presentations and organizational work. He considered that it is necessary to establish connection between Perth and UC Berkeley. About Us.

All can benefit. Many are interested in Buddhism, read and think about it, enjoy it’s thoughtfulness. But the main point of Dharma is accomplishment. One can be a friend of Dharma, a supporter, collector, even a Guru junkie! But the point of Dharma is awakening, and method applied. There are no quick and easy routes, no magic buttons, no gadgets, no tincture of this or that worth the money or effort. All you really need is a comfy cushion, a quiet sacred space, a Mala (prayer beads) an image relating to your practice really helps.
