Online: Samaya Tara Empowerment with H.E. Kathog Rigzin Chenpo
This page is for registration in Africa.
In celebration of the completion of the 21 Taras Garden of Abundance and the arrival of the standing Tara statue at the Rime Institute in Australia, Khentrul Rinpoché has invited His Eminence Katok Rigzin Chenpo to perform a unique empowerment ceremony as a way of further consecrating the statue and creating the conditions for it to become a powerful cause for peace and harmony to flourish in our world.
Samaya Yogini is a practite associated with Jetsun Taranatha, a master in the Jonang lineage. She is associated with the Sanskrit root text Samajaparamarthasarvakaramodaya-nama-tarayoginitantraraja and the samajaparamarthasarvakarmodaya-uttaratantraraja. This is a great opportunity to strengthen your association with the power of the great mother, the mother of the Buddhas. May she protect and sustain the Dharma of definitive meaning and the lineage of the Great Middle Way.
The Kathok Lineage is a unique lineage that combines the Great Middleway Zhentong teachings of the Jonang with Dzogchen Nyingma termas.

We do not offer empowerment books for this event.
3) You will receive access to the zoom for each of the sessions the week of the empowerment.
VARIABLE PROGRAM COSTS
The Dharma is not for sale but we do have cost to put on global events. We have created 3 offering levels to help make this affordable to a range of attendees as we must raise funds to cover the cost. The cost has been adjusted for the cost of living in various countries. Thank you for understanding so that we can make this accessible to our global family. If your ability to pay makes it difficult to attend this program, we will make every effort to make attendance possible.
