EWAM CHODEN is happy to announce that His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin, Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, head of the Sakya school, has kindly accepted our invitation to visit and bestow:

THE EMPOWERMENT OF CHAKRASAMVARA (Khorlo Demchok) in the Nagpopa Tradition (Krishnacharya).  

This is an Anuttarayoga empowerment, the highest in Vajrayana Buddhism.

His name means Wheel of Highest Bliss-Union.  Chakrasamvara is the consort of Vajrayogini.

BENEFIT NOTE:  This high empowerment has no prerequisite excerpt for having taken Refuge from a Lama.
However, the Cakrasamvara Empowerment fulfills the prerequisite for a Vajrayogini empowerment by a Sakya Lama.   If you haven’t received the empowerment of Vajrayogini by a Sakya Lama, and you intend to when it is available, by all means, it would be valuable to receive this Cakrasamvara empowerment.  Furthermore, on August 4 & 5, 2018, His Holiness the Sakya Trichen (41st Sakya Trizin) will bestow the Empowerment of Vajra Nairatmya. The prerequisite for that empowerment is also fulfilled by receiving Cakrasamvara.
