Gaden Choling Mahayana Buddhist Meditation Centre


White Heruka is a special treasure, a practice of long life which combines but Heruka practice — the blessings of this Highest Yoga deity — with self-healing practices. Through White Heruka practice we can attain long, happy and meaningful lives dedicated to compassion for all sentient beings. This practice is recommended for serious and experienced students for the removal of life’s obstacles and the blessings of long-life. Often students offer this practice for the long life of the precious teacher.
This Initiation is rare, coming from the visionary Kadam Emanation Scripture, given in Spiritual Vision directly from the Buddha of Wisdom Manjushri directly to the founder of the Gelugpa Tradition, Je Tsongkhapa. An emanation of the Annutara Yoga version of the Buddha of Compassion – “Wheel of Bliss” Heruka Chakrasamvara – it is a healing and longevity practice. As a Highest Yoga Tantra initiation, it does have important daily and lifetime commitments.
NOTE: In addition to initiation and commitments, you must have received commentary from your teacher to practice. The commentary, if you haven’t previously received it, will be over the weekend, Saturday, December 8-9 (both days). See event notice.

“…Cakrasamvara, white like the reflection of the sun on a crystal mountain, stainless and radiant, one face, two hands, three eyes, hair in a topknot, adorned with beautiful ornaments, holding two long-life vases in the hands, embracing the consort, seated in vajra posture. In the lap is Vajrayogini, red in color, with one face, two hands and three eyes, seated, holding a skullcup filled with nectar in each hand, embracing the Lord around the neck, the two legs embracing the waist, beautifully dressed.” — Gyaltsab Yeshe Lobzang Tanpa’i Gonpo (1760-1810)
