Avalokiteshvara Initiation

Avalokiteshvara (Tib. Chenrezig, Ch. Guanyin) is a Bodhisattva who has vowed to strive for enlightenment for the sole wellbeing of countless sentient beings. Depicted either as male or female in numerous forms and gestures, this Bodhisattva embodies compassion. Prominent in many Sutras, Avalokiteshvara is invoked by through chanting of six-syllable mantra Om mani padme hum (Homage to the [holder of] jewel-lotus!) and other invocative prayers and incantations. The initiation will invoke Ngansong Kundröl (Emancipator of Beings in the Lesser Realms), one of the many manifestations of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. Initiation is a Tantric ritual where a vajra-master grants special permission and blesses the body, speech and mind of the practitioners enabling them to follow the teachings and practices relating to Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. It includes oral transmission of Avalokiteshvara mantra and rituals, as well as chants relating to purification of bad Karmas and cultivation of genuine compassion, which is a mind that aspires to see all being freed from sufferings and their causes. It also ensure longevity, good health, and success. It eventually activates the one seed of altruism for the attainment of the highest enlightenment.
