Ushnisha Vijaya & Kalachakra Empowerment

Ushnisha Vijay

New York: Ushnisha Vijaya Empowerment January 27th, 1:30pm Price $20.00

(9)Kalachakra Diety Empowerment February 26th 10:00am, Teachings 2:00pm, Price $75.00

Atlanta:will be posted soon

Ushnisha Vijaya literally means the victorious crown protrusion. She is an emanation of Vairochana Buddha, and along with the White Tara and Amitabha, one of the three deities of longevity in the Buddhist pantheon. Her practice is believed to be especially beneficial for eliminating hindrances to the attainment of a long and healthy life. She also purifies the negative results which are motivated by the spiritually harmful actions of our own selves.

She is described in her practi ce as follows:

She has a white colored body, three faces and eight arms.
The central face is white, the right yellow; the left is blue
and slightly wrathful. Each face has three eyes.
The first right hand holds a crossed vajra at the heart.
The second holds a lotus on top of which sits Amitabha.
The third holds an arrow. The fourth is in the gesture of
granting generosity.

The first left hand holds a noose, the second grasps a
bow. The third grants the gesture of reassurance. The last
left hand makes the dhyana mudra, or the mudra of meditation.

This is exactly how she has been visualized in this thangka.

Her practice concludes with hymns of prayer and praise:

I prostrate at the feet of Ushnisha Vijaya,
Glorious Goddess the color of the autumn moon,
having an extremely beautiful and peaceful body with
three faces and eight arms,
And who bestows boundless wisdom and the best of lives.

At her feet are shown lying a pair of cymbals and the auspicious mirror used in her worship.

Kalachakra Mandala

Tashi Gyaltsen Rinpoche, founder of Dorje Ling, spiritual
head of the Atlanta and New York Jonang Centers, and recognized as an emanation of Taranatha, will give these very precious empowerments. According to witnesses of his birth in Amdo-Golok in Tibet, the first sound Rinpoche uttered was the Guru Siddhi Mantra, extraordinary teachings that are very rarely taught for Western audiences and which are extremely special to receive. Please pre-register as space is limited.

Kalachakra, dating from the age of the historical Buddha,
is the the Wheel of Time that helps us use our daily experi-ence to clear defilements and manifest wisdom and compas-sion. The practitioner becomes an instrument for universal harmony from the blueprint that is the Kalachakra mandala. (David Reigle) This lha dgu empowerment is one of the four higher empowerments of Kalachakra generation stage. It is a pre-requisite for Kalachakra completion stage, symbolized as Kalachakra with the eight deities ablaze and indicative of the ten signs of accomplishment of the six-branched Kalachakra yoga. This important practice is designed for those with aspiration to achieve enlightenment in this lifetime


Kurukulla, the ruby-red lotus dakini of magic and enchantment, attracts the manifestation of our desires and dances on the demon of ignorance. Her four arms are equanimity, joy, love, and compassion. Her arrows are made from red utpala flowers, which attract opportunities like bees to flowers. Her sadhana mentions magical powers of pacifying, increasingwealth and prosperity, enchanting and magnetizing for good, and destroying obstacle.
