Guidelines for the Kalachakra Initiation

Other languages
Understanding the purpose for each step of the three-day Kalachakra initiation and the mechanism for how each works to awaken and stimulate our Buddha-nature factors enables us to gain the most from the experience of attending. Here, we present clear instructions for both serious participants (those who take the bodhisattva and tantric vows) and neutral observers (those who do not take the vows) on what to do at each step. This includes how to visualize, how to generate a similitude of a blissful cognition of voidness, and what to do when finding it difficult to keep up with the pace of the ritual.
