Dec. 7th VajraYogini Empowerment and Retreat



Sunday, December 7th, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Drupon Samten Rinpoche will give a Vajrayogini empowerment and conduct a full day Vajrayogini retreat at the Tibetan Meditation Center in Escondido.

Vajrayogini, the divine female enlightened dakini, transforms all mundane daily experiences into higher spiritual paths.  Each aspect of Vajrayoginī's form and mandala is designed to convey a spiritual meaning which will be explained at the empowerment.  Visualizing Vajrayoginī is to gain realizations of the generation stage to overcome so-called ordinary appearances and ordinary conceptions, which are said to be the obstructions to liberation and enlightenment. This empowerment is being given at the request of several 3-year retreatants and Drupon Samten is opening up this empowerment for all to attend to receive the great blessings for your daily lives and spiritual practices.

Suggested donation is $30.  Please bring your own lunch or something vegetarian to share for the potluck lunch.  Coffee and tea will be provided.
