20th December 2014, 8.00amHis Holiness the Sakya Trizin will bestow theMuni Tri-Samaya-Vyuha Empowerment
His Holiness the Sakya Trizin, head of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism, has graciously agreed to bestow this empowerment as a prelude to the special series of initiations, the twenty-four peaceful deities of “Knowing One Frees All”.
Before receiving the “Knowing One Frees All” initiations, it is necessary to have received a Kriya-tantra empowerment. The Tri-Samaya-Vyuha tantra belongs to the Tathagata family, the highest of the three families of Kriya-tantra [action tantra], and so serves for all the deities in the “Knowing One Frees All” initiations.
The Gyalwang Karmapa requested His Holiness the Sakya Trizin to grant this empowerment in honour of the fact that it was due to the great kindness of the Sakya masters that this tantra came into the Kagyu tradition at the time of the Sixth Karmapa Thonwa Donden
