Wrathful Guru Rinpoche is one of the many manifestations of Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava). Through this empowerment and practice you can remove your outer, inner and secret obstacles in order to generate tantric realizations, especially diseases of an emotional or mental nature. Through this practice you can also help others. The soul and blessing of empowerment is to keep the samaya between the guru and the student. Through this empowerment you will also learn the different wrathful manifestations of Guru Rinpoche.
