ENCORE TRANSMISSION, TEACHING AND PRACTICE
Saturday, August 19, 3-4 pm, PDT
OPEN TO ALL
Do you find it difficult to sustain your tantric practice? Are there multiple impediments that prevent you from maintaining pure practice? Dharma Protectors play an important role in removing obstacles in our tantric practice and helping us to sustain it. As tantric practitioners it is our responsibility to make connections to these powerful, awakened Dharma Friends and keep a meaningful relationship with them through regular offerings and praises, such as tea offerings or golden nectar offerings.
Six-Armed MAHAKALA is the wrathful emanation of the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezik, and one of the most important Dharma Protectors in the Ear-Whispered lineage of our tradition. We will receive transmission and learn a short golden nectar tea offering with praise and prayers along with his mantra.
This special event is open to the public. However, it is intended for those who are willing and committed to putting this into practice with altruistic intentions. Those who have received this transmission before are really encouraged to join as well to reinforce and renew your connections. The transmission will be followed by commentary and practice with Khandro-la.
After receiving the transmission, you will receive the Six-Armed Mahakala Tea Offering Text in pdf format and will be invited to join our weekly online group practice where we alternatively practice Palden Lhamo, Vajrayogini and Six-Armed Mahakala (a short 30-minute, potent and sweet practice.)
Participation in this online transmission requires that you display your name on Zoom and keep your video on during the entire session.
REGISTRATION is required. It is customary to express gratitude for receiving transmission and making a connection to the lineage by offering dana, though no one will be turned away for lack of ability to do so. To register and offer Dana, go to our website here. Those who have already registered before with dana, please just let Ellen (email@example.com) know your intention to attend this time.
We hope to see you at this opportunity to receive this precious transmission and practice together.
