September 24, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Empowerment of Guru Padmasambhavaaccording to the Lineage of Tsasum Lingpa
bestowed by Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche
Before the Buddha‰۪s mahaparanirvana, he prophesized that an even greater incarnation of himself would soon be born whose name would be Padmasambhava, the Lotus Born. Guru Padmasambhava is a buddha, a fully awakened one. He did not become enlightened gradually, or start practicing the teachings and eventually gain enlightenment. He incarnated as a totally enlightened being. Through his form, primordial wisdom manifests in the world to benefit all sentient beings. He embodies all the buddhas of the three times, and is the buddha of our age. While Buddha Shakyamuni mainly presented Hinayana and Sutra Mahayana teachings, Guru Padmasambhava widely taught the Vajrayana as well. Both revealed the complete and perfect path to awakening so that everyone would benefit.
