Life and Liberation: The Story of Buddha

Buddha Shakyamuni is a revolutionary teacher, a master of the mind, and the founder of Buddhism in this world. He lived and gave teachings in India over 2600 years ago. Since that time, millions of people around the world have followed the spiritual path that Buddha so skillfully and kindly revealed. Join us as we explore the life story of Buddha Shakyamuni, and be inspired by how Buddha’s life and teachings can still be used as a powerful guide for a happy and meaningful life in modern society.

This talk will be followed up by Blessing Empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni
An empowerment is a special guided meditation and teaching through which we can awaken our vast spiritual potential, heal our mind, and be inspired to make the most of this life through following in the footsteps of Buddha. In particular, by learning how to rely on Buddha Shakyamuni as our supreme unchanging friend, we can gradually learn to remove all negativity and darkness from our mind, and develop a profound wisdom that will help us to truly love and care for
everyone in our life and in our world.

Everyone is welcome – it doesn’t matter if you are new, you are very welcome to enjoy this wonderful event.
