Special announcement-Hevajra Programme 2013

Dear friends,

Fundación Sakya is extremely pleased to announce that His Holiness Sakya Trizin will be bestowing Hevajra empowerments and instructions specially to Lamdre1 students who are planning to do the Hevajra retreat.

While the programme was originally intended for students who have received Lamdre, through the Foundation's request, His Holiness has consented to bestow the Hevajra Cause and Path Empowerment as part of this programme to old and new students who are committed to the practice of Hevajra2 so that this precious opportunity could be available to them as well.

Please note, however, that only students who have received the full Lamdre will be able to perform the traditional Hevajra retreat.  This retreat is planned to start right after His Holiness' teachings, so that the warmth of His Holiness' blessings is carried through unbroken into the retreat, all samayas are renewed, which is important for the conduct of the retreat, as well as reparation of any breakage of samaya in our daily practice.

For students who are unable to complete the full Hevajra retreat, a shorter Hevajra Session is available to all students who have received the Hevajra Cause and Path Empowerment. 

"I am happy to hear that His Holiness is going to give Hevajra instructions to retreatants.  Hevajra is very important to the Sakyapa tradition.  If you are a true Sakyapa practitioner, you should do the Hevajra retreat.  This is a wonderful and precious opportunity.  I would encourage all my students to attend.
