THOUSAND ARMED AVALOKITESHVARA INITIATION
Avalokiteshvara is the Buddha of Compassion, a manifestation of the selfless, unconditional compassion of all the Buddhas, appearing in many forms.
In this initiation, Demo Rinpoche will introduce the appearance of Avalokiteshvara with a thousand arms and a thousand eyes. This is a full initiation of the Kriya Tantra class and allows the initiate to visualize themselves in the form of Avalokitesvara and any other deity within Kriya Tantra, such as White Tara.
In preparation for the upcoming winter retreat, after taking this initiation, one can visualize oneself as White Tara and practice the long and short sadhana of White Tara while reciting her mantra during retreat.
This initiation is separate from the Winter Retreat. All are welcome.
It is recommended to not eat meat before the initiation.
Friday, February 7
11:30am – 5:30pm – Includes a one hour lunch break.
