The Chakrasamvara empowerment, of the Ghantapada tradition, has five deities within the mandala. To emphasize the importance of this particular practice, His Holiness the Sakya Trichen commented:
“Unlike other mandala such as Hevajra or Kalachakra, the Chakrasamvara mandala is still fully manifested and active in the twenty-four holy places in India. For this reason, Chakrasamvara and his consort, Vajrayogini, are considered one of the most effective deities of our time.”
The prerequisite for taking this empowerment is Refuge. There are no commitments. This empowerment fullfils the prerequisite for a Vajrayogini empowerment by a Sakya Lama.
His Holiness the Sakya Trichen Rinpoche is the forty-first head of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism. He is a peerless and world-renowned master of the Dharma in general and the Vajrayana in particular. His compassion and wisdom are an inspiration to all those who have the fortune to meet him.
