Receiving the empowerment together in the Mantra Stupa
Our White Tara mandala. Thanks to Yonten, Ganda and Lassy for the beautiful work.
There are 3 categories of empowerments: Seed empowerment, path empowerment and fruit empowerment. When we receive an empowerment, we get permission to visualize the deity, recite the heart mantra and meditate. After the empowerment, we practice on the path. With diligence, joy and proper motivation, we gradually make progress until we reach the final result – the accomplishment or siddhi. That is when we can say that we have actually received the empowerment.
