Gonkar (White Mahakala) Empowerment: the Wish Granting Gem
Gonkar is the “Wish Granting Gem,” as he helps bring everything we need for our path and for our lives.
This is the wealth aspect of Mahakala which specifically supports the comfort and economic well-being of tantric practitioners as we pursue awakening- the embodiment of love and wisdom.
As this is a tantric empowerment, please note:
- Formal refuge vows are required to take this empowerment; refuge will be offered at the start of the empowerment for those who have not taken formal vows. Please indicate if you will be taking refuge vows on the registration form.
- Registration is also required. We will be sending additional information.
- Arrive at least 10 minutes before the empowerment is to start; doors will be locked and no one will be admitted once the empowerment begins. Please note – ending time is approximate.
Cost: The center donation is $25, which is paid online when you register. In addition, an offering is made to Lama Palden directly at the end of the empowerment, when participants receive her blessing. Katas and envelopes will be available.
