The Australian Dharma Celebration is a spiritual holiday where like-minded people from across the country gather to receive special blessings and teachings from our National Spiritual Director, Gen Kelsang Rabten.

During this celebration Gen Rabten will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara, and give teachings on overcoming attachment. White Tara is a female enlightened being whose function is to bestow long life, wisdom and good fortune and to protect us against disease and danger. If we rely upon her with faith it is definite that we shall experience these extraordinary benefits.

The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we will make a deep connection with Tara’s love and inspiration and receive her healing, joyful and protective blessings.

After the empowerment, Gen Rabten will inspire us to destroy the inner enemy of our uncontrolled desire – the greatest obstacle we face on our journey to everlasting happiness.

By controlling our desire we will become increasingly calm, content and joyful. Our meditations will be more focused, and the development of happiness and wisdom will become effortless.
