Vajra Yogini
Self Initiation

September 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

« All Events

  • This event has passed.

Join us on Tuesday, 20th September 2022 for a self-initiation ritual which taps into the potent tantric energies of the feminine divine.

The Vajra Yogini self-initiation ceremony is a complex, elaborate ritual that has great significance for both initiates and non-initiates.

  • For the uninitiated, attending the self-initiation ceremony creates the causes for us to receive Vajra Yogini’s practice in the future.
  • For the initiated, the ceremony mends and reaffirms our vows taken previously, and purifies downfalls that could prevent us from gaining attainments from our practice.

Even more auspiciously, this ritual will be performed on Dakini Tsog Day, when our connection with the highest tantric female deity Vajra Yogini is strongest. Devoted Buddhists celebrate this holy day with a feast of offerings to deepen their connection with the feminine energy of wisdom.

Event Details

The puja will be conducted by visiting Sangha from Shar Gaden, Serpom, Phelgyeling and Segyu monasteries, and led by His Eminence Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende and other high lamas and esteemed geshes.
