INTERNATIONAL FALL

FESTIVAL 

Empowerments of Heruka & Vajrayogini
with Gen-la Dekyong

In Person & On-line
 

Oct 25 – Nov 1, 2024, at KMC Brazil

As Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche explains in Modern Buddhism, 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. In this Festival Gen-la Dekyong will grant the empowerments of the principal Deities of Highest Yoga Tantra – Heruka and Vajrayogini and introduce their essential practices. This is a rare and wonderful opportunity to receive from Gen-la Dekyong the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments and teachings of Heruka and Vajrayogini according to the Ganden oral lineage, which is the special heart treasure of her Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

The Festival is open to everyone and suitable for all levels of experience.
