An empowerment is a special guided meditation where we directly meet an enlightened being and come under their care and guidance. Prajnaparamita is a female enlightened wisdom Buddha. She holds in her hand a scripture that is the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras, indicating she bestows the attainment of the union of great bliss and emptiness upon all beings. This attainment leads to the perfect joy and compassion of enlightenment.
In this empowerment, we will receive powerful wisdom blessings and teachings from the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras to grant us deep insight into the truth of emptiness. We will then receive a daily emptiness practice so that our wisdom becomes more profound day after day until our mind is always filled with wisdom. This empowerment will be based on The Heart Sutra, given by Buddha, explained in the book The New Heart of Wisdom by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
