Buddha Shakyamuni Empowerment: A New Year's Eve Celebration

  • Kadampa Meditation Center Texas 1875 Laws Street Dallas, TX, 75202 United States (map)

Buddha Shakyamuni is the founder of Buddhism and his teachings continue to resonate with people throughout the world. Buddha taught that everything depends upon the mind. If we integrate his teachings into our daily life we will be able to solve all our inner problems and attain a truly peaceful mind.

Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. However, if we establish peace within our minds, outer peace will come naturally.

Join us for this very special event where Gen Kelsang Menla will grant the empowerment of Buddha Shakyamuni. He will also explain how we can make a connection with Buddha through special meditations contained within the Prayers for Meditation booklet.


Gen Kelsang Menla was ordained as a Kadampa Buddhist monk in 2001 and has taught Kadampa Buddhism since that time. Gen Menla has also completed temple renovation projects in Baltimore, Albuquerque and our own temple here in Dallas. He brings a warm heart and joyful attitude to sharing Buddha's teachings and the practice of meditation.
