Day 2 – Karma Pakshi Empowerment given by Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche

On the second day of this year’s Summer Course, Maniwa Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche gave an empowerment into a Guru Yoga meditation aspect, the 2nd Karmapa Karma Pakshi and his Mandala.

The life stories of the Karmapas according to traditional account are all full of vivid examples of their mind’s miraculous powers, meditation experiences and encounters with Buddhas. The 2nd Karmapa Karma Pakshi (1204 – 1283) was the first consciously reincarnated Lama of Tibet. Ever since that time, the Karmapas have manifested in a successive line of reincarnations until the present day, always heading the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism.
