EMPOWERMENT OF TWO-ARMED RED HAYAGRIVA on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Ewam Choden

Filed under Empowerments, Uncategorized

Ven. Lama Kunga Rinpoche has kindly agreed to bestow the empowerment and practice teachings of the Two-Armed Red Hayagriva on Sunday, October 27, 2019.

The empowerment begins at 1:00 pm. Please arrive early to register at the door.

There is a requested donation of $30. (Offering to the Lama is separate.)


A practice sadhana will be given, but the empowerment can be taken as a blessing.
 There is no prerequisite requirement or pre-registration. 

This empowerment is open to everyone who has taken refuge and follows the Buddhist path.

The practice of Hayagriva can eliminate external and internal obstacles and problems, particularly those caused by demons and spirits.                                                                                                                 The empowerment of Hayagriva was originally received by Machik Trupai Gyalmo directly from Hayagriva.  She transmitted it to Tipu Sang Nga Dongpo, who transmitted to Rechungpa.  Rechungpa gave it to Milarepa who transmitted it to Gampopa and then the lineage was held by the Drigung Kagyu.  Eventually it went through the Tsarpa Tradition, and then to the Sakya.  From this,  to Gelugpa, and all of the Tibetan Buddhist schools.
