During this year’s South German Dharma Celebration Gen Kelsang Ananda will explain how we can develop and maintain a good heart through training in loving kindness. He will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya, the manifestation of the loving kindess of all Buddhas. If we rely upon Buddha Maitreya with faith we will receive his special care in this and all future lives and gradually attain all the realizations of Kadam Lamrim.
“The loving kindness of all Buddhas appears in the form of Buddha Maitreya in order to lead all living beings to a sincere practice of love. The function of this Buddha is to bestow the realization of loving kindness, the realizations of affectionate love, wishing love and cherishing love and the realization of the supreme good heart, Bodhichitta.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
