Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says, “The gateway through which we enter Tantra is receiving a Tantric empowerment. An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.”

The empowerments and teachings in Week 2 will open the door to Highest Yoga Tantra, the very essence of Kadampa Buddhism and the quick path to enlightenment.
