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.
