Kalu Rinpoche | Wang Lung Tri (Part 4)

Now the empowerment itself has different layer also, it has different “layer” of its own. And “layer” not because you have high clearance and low clearance. It has nothing to do with that. It’s more like symbolically, auspiciously, signifying that you will make gradual progress over the time.

All the empowerment has a creation stage, completion stage and recognizing the non-dual state of mind. All empowerment has that stage. There’s a preliminary stage, creation stage, there’s a completion stage and so on. Some empowerments takes days for the creation stage and then some empowerments takes another day just for the completion stage and so on.

So therefore, it depends on the type of empowerment, there’s a different length of the transmission, empowerment and so on. But principally, it has the preliminary, primary and the creation and completion, followed by non-dual meditation.

So that’s the basic and the foundation of all the empowerments.That’s our human capacity, what we can reflect on the meaning, when it comes to empowerment.
