Tulku Dawa Gyalpo Rinpoche will bestow the White Umbrella (Dukkar) empowerment during this session. Empowerment is a ritual that is prerequisite for tantric Buddhist training; an initiation that transmits, or awakens the esoteric wisdom in the mind of the disciple. A rare opportunity to receive this empowerment, attendance is urged for those who are practicing or are considering engaging in Tantrayana practices. The White Umbrella practice is especially powerful for averting obstacles. (Click on the above names in bold for more information.) We request a $20 offering to defray Rinpoche's travel and expenses.
