Could someone please explain the difference between a Cause and Path empowerment? Is there also a Result empowerment?

Hevajra Cause Empowerment is normally conducted over 2 days and Path Empowerment is bestowed within a day. The prerequisite of receiving Path Empowerment is Cause Empowerment. In the Sakyapa tradition, there is Sadhana practice commitment after receiving both empowerments.

There is no result empowerment as your final attainment from your practice is the 'result empowerment'.

I just received email back from the center email listed on the website. They told me that HHSt will be teaching in English.

I ran the translation through Google online translation but the cost of the teachings aren't clear to me. Could someone please summarize the website a bit?

So full registration is 6000 Yuan or is that registration for the complete Lamdre in order to save a spot but the actual cost of the full Lamdre will be something higher?

Thanks!

Kirt

Th retreat only costs 200 us dollars and you receive 75 back if you go to everyday.
Gyana vajra rinpoche will not be attending so there will not be any afternoon teachings. The schedule will be 9-12
Monday to Friday and full days on weekends. Gyana vajra rinpoche will come back in 2013 and do teaching on lamdre.
Payment can be made via paypal and if you send them an email they will send you there paypal account.

Hope to see u there

Does anyone know details of accommodation etc that would be suitable for attending the Lam Dre? I am in Australia and considering
attending this event. I did email the organizers but was only advised of the costs. Any advice would be useful...many thanks!

Guest houses in Taipei arn't terribly expensive.

I recommend this place:

http://www.worldscholarhouse.com/

It is run by a delightful lady from America and isn't too far from the venue.

10,000 Taiwanese dollars for a month's stay in a private room.
