The Very Heart of Kadam Dharma
The 2020 Fall Festival is a very special event at which we will receive empowerments and commentaries to the uncommon Highest Yoga Tantra practices of Heruka body mandala and Vajrayogini from Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU.
The practices of Heruka body mandala and Vajrayogini are the very essence of Highest Yoga Tantra.
Empowerments & teachings at the Festival
At the Fall Festival Gen-la Dekyong will first grant the empowerments of the Highest Yoga Tantra practices of Heruka body mandala and Vajrayogini, and then give a brief commentary to the essential practices.
Without first receiving the empowerments we cannot engage in Highest Yoga Tantra practices. In Modern Buddhism Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche explains that the gateway through which we enter Tantra is receiving a Tantric empowerment. This bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.
The Highest Yoga Tantra practices of Heruka body mandala and Vajrayogini are the swift path to enlightenment that enables us to attain the state of a Buddha in this one short life.
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche has given comprehensive explanations of how to engage in these two practices in his books Essence of Vajrayana and The New Guide to Dakini Land. Gen-la will give brief commentaries based on these precious books.
This Festival is a unique and precious opportunity to learn from a qualified contemporary Teacher how to practice Buddha’s Tantric teachings according to the lineage of modern Kadampa Buddhism.
