Kalachakra 2011- Refuge Vow

Postby dharma81 » Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:25 pm

Will HHDL be giving the refuge vow during this event before he gives the bodhisattva vow?

Thanks!

It is always included because you can't take an empowerment if you don't have the bodhisattva vow and you can't take the bodhisattva vow if you don't have the refuge vow. However, the refuge vow might not be in a traditional Tibetan way with the hair cutting and the name giving way, but it will be there.

You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."
