EVENT: Prajnaparamita Empowerment with Venerable Zasep Rinpoche by Zoom

Venerable Zasep Rinpoche: “Prajnaparamita means ’The Perfection of Wisdom’ in Mahayana Buddhism. Prajnaparamita refers to the perfected way of seeing the nature of all reality.  Prajnaparamita can also refer to the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, also known as the Heart Sutra.

“Prajnaparamita can also refer to the Bodhisattva known as the “Great Mother”, the mother of all the Buddhas. She is the goddess who appears in many emanations to serve humanity. She is known as Yum Chenmo in Tibetan, and features prominently in the Chod Dharma practice system taught by Padampa Sangye and the famous Dakini, Machig Labdron.

Almost all female Buddhas such as Tara, Vajrayogini, Kurukulla, Sarasvati, Singhamukha, Durga (Dorje Demo in Tibetan), and Lakshmi (Nor Junma in Tibetan), are emanations of Prajnaparamita.

The Prajnaparamita sadhana practice and ‘Gate Gate Paragate’ mantra recitation is very powerful, bringing you closer to the realization of Shunyata wisdom.

For all those who practice Chod, it is important to receive the empowerment of Prajnaparamita.
