VAJRAYOGINI PUJA ON THE DAY OF DAKINIS


7th March 2013 –Vajra Vidhya Institute, Sarnath.


On the 25th day of the 1st month of the Tibetan calendar, the Day of Dakinis, the Gyalwang Karmapa presided over special puja centered on the deity Vajrayogini. The Day of Dakinis celebrates female wisdom-deities, while Vajrayogini is considered to be the supreme manifestation of female enlightened energy. With His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche and Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche also in attendance, the puja assumed an extra dimension of tantric potency and sacredness.
The Gyalwang Karmapa began his preparatory rituals and the consecration of the mandala in the closed gompa several hours before the actual puja began. The puja was restricted to only those who had previously received the Vajrayogini empowerment. At 7pm the registered participants were invited inside to participate in the evening ritual, which stretched late into the night. Throughout the puja the Gyalwang Karmapa was adorned in a sacred costume and crown, each piece laden with tantric symbolism.
