From the announcement:
Dearest dharma friends everywhere!
We are truly happy to announce the visit of H.E. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche in Athens from the 13th to the 15th of September 2013. During his visit, Rinpoche will transmit 2 highly important initiations belonging to the Vajrayana Karma Kagyu Lineage. The Mahakala (Tib. Bernagchen) and the Dorje Pamo (Skt. Vajrayogini) transmissions. These two make up two of the three refuges of a Vajrayana practitioner, which are the Guru, the Yidam and thirdly the Protector. Without the support of these three we cannot successfully proceed on such a deep spiritual path. Although the enlightened master is considered the essence of all, one nevertheless uses these powerful skilful methods to clear the many veils covering our enlightened nature.
Rinpoche will also talk about what we need to keep in mind throughout our spiritual journey in order to achieve the best result possible, by referring to the spiritual advice given by lineage holder Gampopa called ‘‘The Four Dharmas Of Gampopa”.
Ven. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche is one of the few great teachers who still continue to transmit the highest tantric teachings and initiations of the Vajrayana Vehicle of Buddhism. He has received endless transmissions from many great masters of Tibetan Buddhism, like H.H. the 16th Karmapa, H.H. Dalai Lama, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, H.H. Sakya Trinzin, Venerable Kalu Rinpoche as well as from many others. Rinpoche is considered to be a Rime, which means, holder of the four main lineages of Tibetan Buddhism, although his activity is clearly that of the Karma Kagyu tradition. He has practiced the Vajrayana Diamond Way methods all his life and has all the qualifications and realizations needed in order to transmit them in a true and authentic way.

With the eye of wisdom we discover a lot of anger in us, any amount of jealousy, resentment, ignorance, desire - mountains of emotion whose existence we would never have suspected in ourselves... We recognize that most of the faults we perceive in others are only the mirror of our own negativity, the reflection of our own disturbed feelings... At the same time, we relieve the world around us of the burden of our own negative judgements."
