Revised Chamtrul Rinpoche Schedule

* Dream Yoga revised schedule:
Wednesday July 20, 7pm – 9pm Tibetan House
Thursday July 21, 7pm – 9pm, Tibetan House
(there will be no morning class on Thursday, July 21)

* Vajrasattva Empowerment July 24

For those who would like to further their Vajrasattva practice, we are very happy to announce that Chamtrul Rinpoche will be offering a Vajrasattva Empowerment. We did not include this in the previous announcement of his schedule.
In order to receive this empowerment, you will need to attend the Friday evening Intro to Tantra: the Practice of Vajrasattva class, July 22, and the Sunday morning Preparation for the Vajrasattva Empowerment, July 24. The Empowerment will take place in the afternoon of the 24th. Please check the schedule at the end of this letter for details.

If you are interested in this Empowerment, please consider the following commitments:

• taking Refuge in the Three Jewels

• avoid killing

• recite the Vajrasattva 100 syllable mantra 100,000 times, to be completed in this lifetime.

We ask that you do not attend the Empowerment in the afternoon if you have not attended the previous two teachings, even if you have attended other teachings and have an active Vajrasattva practice.

The Empowerment is for those that wish to receive it. Please understand that it is not for those who simply want to observe it.

I requested a teaching of Vajrasattva from each teacher that has visited us this year, mostly for of the depth of this essential practice, and partly because there is an evening gathering for the practice of Vajrasattva at the Community Center of Louisiana Himalayan Association that is ongoing. It is extremely beneficial to have a group of people to consistently sit with for this practice.
