The Mid-Atlantic Dharma Celebration is an annual regional Kadampa Buddhist celebration in Baltimore that includes teachings, a blessing ceremony called an empowerment, and guided meditations. An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we receive powerful blessings that enrich our body, speech, and mind. This year, Kadam Morten will grant the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of Loving Kindness. He will give teachings on Sustaining Love in Difficult Times. Everyone is welcome.
