Vajrapani empowerment & teaching
His Holiness Gangri Karma Rinpoche will confer the empowerment of the Four-Arm Vajrapani Bhutadamara, an extraordinary practice within the Martsang Kagyu lineage, belonging in the category of Anuttarayoga Tantra.
Vajrapani Bhutadamara is one of the nine manifestations of Vajrapani. He expresses the Four Immeasurables with his four arms, and is wrathful to subdue and dispel obstacles of evil and negativities. An aide to Amitabha Buddha in the liberation of beings, Vajrapani is master among all the Dharmaphala practices, averting disasters for beings, increasing the activities of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and subjugating, fulfilling aspirations for fortune and longevity. This is a powerful empowerment which is full of blessings.
It is said in the Tantra of Vajrapani, sincerely reciting the mantra of Vajrapani once, is greater than reciting the names of Buddhas for as many times as the sands in the Ganges River. The sincere recitation of the mantra of Vajrapani will ensure eternal protection from Vajrapani, limitless merits, subjugation of all evils, elimination of obstacles and harm from demons, and the Nagas and local spirits will be appeased. The practice of Vajrapani has limitless benefits.
