Chenrezig Empowerment


Chenrezig Empowerment
Saturday, November 26, 2022
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
In-Person & Zoom
Suggested Donation: $35

We are very happy to announce that Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe will be offering a Chenrezig Empowerment (Initiation) Saturday, November 26th, 2022 in person and via zoom at Gaden Samten Ling. 

Chenrezig embodies and represents the compassion of all the Buddhas. He listens to the prayers of all sentient beings in times of challenge and difficulty.

An Empowerment (Initiation) is a ceremony where the initiation master, based on his own realization gained in retreat, transmits the connection to the deity and gives us permission to engage in regular meditation practice on this deity. It creates a bridge between us, the teacher, and the deity, introducing us to the true nature of Chenrezig and allowing us to receive the full blessings of engaging in this meditation practice.

Kushok will be offering this Initiation mainly to support those who will participate in the seven day Chenrezig Retreat being held December 1 to 7, 2022. 

The Chenrezig Empowerment is open to anyone interested in developing or strengthening their connection to Chenrezig, and to receive blessings and protection from the Guru. 


Saturday, November 26, 2022
11:00 am – 1:00 pm MST
This event will be offered in-person at the Alberta Centre for Peace and Meditation, 11403 101 Street, Edmonton, AB.

A Zoom link will be provided for those who are unable to attend due to distance or accessibility.


There is no fee for empowerments at Gaden Samten Ling. Within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition it is customary to offer a donation to the hosting centre in gratitude for the opportunity to receive this blessing. The suggested minimum donation is $35.00.
