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 White Tara, a female enlightened Deity whose function is to bestow long life, wisdom and good fortune. He will give teachings on the practice of the five forces, the essence of all Dharmas. Everyone is welcome.
