I know some people can only come partially (including myself), so
people must want to know when they can get what.
This is not formal and official, but I got a text: 'Rinchen Terdzo
empowerments index', which is the sequence it was given traditionally.
Every lama would change a bit, but as far as I know, most of cases are
just small changes.
This index is in Tibetan and Chinese; the index itself is pretty much
just follow the sequence of Rinchen Terdzo text itself.
There are 750ish empowerments in the index, so obviously I can't
translate them all and post here, but I will briefly introduce here:
the great Rinchen Terdzo is separated to three parts: mahayoga,
anuyoga and atiyoga.
the biggest part is mahayoha, was divided to tantra, guru, deity,
dakani, dharma protector and practical texts.
the sequence is:
A. tantra --
start with Mingling Vajrasattva and Karmalingpa peaceful and wrathful
100 deities, there are quite several empowerments.
B. three roots ---
all the three roots combined texts.
C. guru ---
this part is huge.
a peaceful guru ----
1. dharmakaya form: such as famous Guru Chowang Lama sangdu
2. sambhodakaya form: not too many, but some
3. nirmakaya form: vast text! a lot of guru rinpoche empowerments. and
some other lama's guru practice
b wrathful guru---
all wrathful guru rinpoche
D. deities ---
divided in 8 heruka style:
a Manjusri : body:
1. peaceful manjusri
2. wrathful yamandaka
3. very wrathful yamandaka
b. Lotus : speech
1. peaceful amidabha, amitayu and avalokesrivara --- also very vast,
a lot of texts.
2. wrathful Hayagriva
3. very wrathful black hayagriva
h so on and so on
from Tara to all dakini. quite some texts but not as many as C and D
F dharma protectors
some texts but less than E
G pratical texts
oh, this is the confusing part
there are a lot of texts here, divided with different 'usage', but you
can find all the thing people want here: medicine buddha, manjusri,
kurukule, Jambala, this and that...
and hundreds of empowerments, but they all tend to be shorter, so
beware when you count the dates.
not many empowerments here
there can be quite some empowerments, but seems some lama tend not to give all. some empowerments in this chapter are kept for qualified
hope this would help!
p.s., again, I need to say that this is not official claim from ODD. I can't take responsibility for your mis-schedule LOL
