Secret Hayagriva Empowerment by Dagri Rinpoche

Sep 26, Thursday - 7pm till end

With interpretation by Venerable Steve Carlier

Dagri Rinpoche will be conferring the Secret Hayagriva Empowerment (instead of the Yamantaka Empowerment).
Secret Hayagriva is a highest yoga tantra empowerment from the Lotus Family. This will be a full empowerment, complete with the four initiations. Tantric vows will be conferred.

Hayagriva is a wrathful aspect of Chenresig. Making prayers to Hayagriva is a swift and powerful means to overcome negative forces and obstacles including those caused by spirit harms. Prayers to the deity are especially beneficial in these degenerate times when sufferings and illnesses are rampant due to the strong delusions of sentient beings. As a manifestation of Chenresig, the practice of Hayagriva also helps to develop compassion.

Pre-requisite: Students must have taken refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. They must have some experience of the three principal aspects of the path — renunciation, bodhicitta and the correct view of emptiness. And they must have faith in and appreciation for Tantra.

Commitment – daily for the rest of your life.
– Six Session Guru Yoga – best to do the long, if not possible, short version
– Mantra of Secret Hayagriva
