This initiation belongs to the famed Golden Dharmas of the Sakya tradition. The system of meditation on the black form of Manjushri, the embodiment of wisdom, is especially valued as a remedy to many obstacles that can confront us in dharma practice and work.
Please note that in order to receive initiation by which one enters the vajrayana, one must first have made a formal commitment to the Buddhist path through the ceremony of taking refuge. Please contact the center in advance if you would like to do this prior to the teaching.
