NEW in July 2006.
Volume 2 of the Vajrayogini Series from FPMT is out! It contains the text for the The Pacifying Burning Offering Ritual of Vajrayogini and all the necessary instructions and practice materials for performing Vajrayogini’s pacifying burning offering. This booklet is provided for those who have completed the mantra recitations of Vajrayogini’s nearing retreat for enabling actions. Volume 1, pupblished last year, titled Initial Practices of Vajrayogini includes the short, middle and long sadhanas, instructions on how to enter into and abide in the retreat, a tea offering, two tsog offering texts, and hand offering practice as well as several color images.
In the extensive practice of Vajrayogini, there are three aspects: empowerment, approximation, and activity. Upon receiving the four empowerments, a disciple of vajrayogini is invested with the permission and transmission of energy from one’s guru to engage in Vajrayogini’s path of practice. The seeds of the four buddha-bodies have been planted in the disciple’s mental continuum that will eventually ripen into the actual enlightened bodies of Vajragogini – perhaps even in this lifetime! One then engages in the nearing retreat of enabling action, practicing the generation and completion stages of Vajrayogini and thus coming nearer to the attainment of Vajrayogini’s enlightenment itself. Upon completion of the nearing retreat the disciple performs the pacifying burning offering. This is for the purpose of purifying what was missing, extra, or mistakenly done during the nearing retreat. Having fully completed the nearing retreat of Vajrayogini, the disciple is then able to go on to engage in Vajrayogini’s extensive activities, such as self-initiation an so on.
In this second volume of FPMT’s Vajrayogini practice series, all the necessary instructions and practice materials for performing Vajrayogini’s pacifying burning offering are provided for those who have completed the mantra recitations of Vajrayogini’s nearing retreat for enabling actions.
