2018 Raising Wind Horse Energy Retreat on Buddha Vajrapani

May 26 @ 7:00 am - May 28 @ 1:00 pm

Empowerment and Teachings on Buddha Vajrapani

According to the Lineage of Mipham Rinpoche

Bestowed by Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche

Vajrapani (Skt. Vajrapāṇi; Tib. ཕྱག་ན་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Chakna Dorje; Wyl.phyag na rdo rje) is one of the eight great bodhisattvas and lords of the three families. He represents the power of the buddhas and is usually depicted as blue in color and holding a vajra. He is especially responsible for transmitting the tantras to the human realm, and is known, in this context, as the “Lord of Secrets” (Skt. Guhyapati; Tib. གསང་བའི་བདག་པོ་, Wyl. gsang ba’i bdag po).

Weekend activities will include raising new prayer flags around all of Padma Samye Ling, as well as performing smoke offering ceremonies with Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche.
