Lopon Sangye’s Notes about the 2010 Empower­ment Events:   DOC for­mat

The Kun­zang Gongdu Dzog­chen Clarity-Luminosity empower­ments are open to everyone. There are no prerequisites for par­ticipation in this cycle of empower­ments. Rin­poche rarely gives this cycle of empower­ments. Receiving this trans­mis­sion is a requirement for Dzog­chen prac­tices (especially con­nec­ted with the Kün­zang Gongdü cycle). It is also a requirement for one to par­ticipate in Dzog­chen cour­ses given by HH Gang­teng Tulku Rin­poche. The Kordo Rushen, Treg­cho, Thogal and Bardo prac­tices are part of this course. Receiving the initiation also grants per­mis­sion to do Tsa-Lung-Thigle practices.
