In celebration of the completion of the 21 Taras Garden of Abundance and the arrival of the standing Tara statue at the Rime Institute in Australia, Khentrul Rinpoché has invited His Eminence Kathog Rigdzin Chenpo to perform a unique empowerment ceremony as a way of further consecrating the statue and creating the conditions for it to become a powerful cause for peace and harmony to flourish in our world.
Samaya Yogini is a practite associated with Jetsun Taranatha, a master in the Jonang lineage. She is associated with the Sanskrit root text Samajaparamarthasarvakaramodaya-nama-tarayoginitantraraja and the samajaparamarthasarvakarmodaya-uttaratantraraja. This is a great opportunity to strengthen your association with the power of the great mother, the mother of the Buddhas. May she protect and sustain the Dharma of definitive meaning and the lineage of the Great Middle Way.
The Kathog Lineage is a unique lineage that combines the Great Middleway Zhentong teachings of the Jonang with Dzogchen Nyingma termas. H.E. Rigzin Chenpo’s group practice Tara regularly so we are very fortunate to have this opportunity to receive this from him. The first Kathog Rigdzin Chenpo was Sasang Mati Panchen, a Jonangpa and a Heart son of Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen. H.E. Rigdzin Chenpo’s group practice Tara regularly so we are very fortunate to have this opportunity to receive this from him.
