Part Two of
Golden Nectar Tea Offerings - Transmission Series
Join us for Part Two in this series of Transmissions, Commentaries and Practices for befriending Dharma Protectors and Protectoresses who 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.
On July 3, 2:00-3:00 pm, PDT, Khandro-la will offer transmission with commentary and practice for Golden Nectar Tea Offering With Eight-Line Praise to Vajrayogini. Yidam Vajrayogini is called the Queen of All Awakened Dakinis. We are anticipating that Khandro-la will offer Vajrayogini Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment this fall, and so we are greatly encouraged to make prayers and strong connection to this yidam through such a practice as this. We offer praise and reverence to her through this tea offering which was composed by Ngulchu Dharmabhadra (1772-1851) as part of the Yoga of Daily Activities of the Eleven Yogas of Naropa. It includes the Eight-Line Praise to Vajrayogini, praising her qualities.
We bring this short practice into our daily life with reverence, humility, homage and respect to the Queen of Dakinis while inspiring ourselves to connect with our own true nature. The benefits of reciting this Eight-Line Praise are boundless. Khandro-la has written a Commentary on The Eight-Line Praise to Vajrayogini which is available in the DW Media Store. Her new book, DAKINI JOURNEY IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD, available on Amazon, explains the significance of connecting with Dakini on our human and spiritual journey.
This special event is open to the public. However, it is intended only for those who are willing and committed to putting the tea offering 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.
After receiving the transmission, you will receive the Sadhana in pdf format
