Denma Locho Rinpoche will give the White Manjushri Initiation, along with the retreat instructions. He will also talk about the eight worldly dharmas. White Manjushri is a kriya or action tantra practice, belonging to the Tathagatha family. Rinpoche says that this practice is particularly effective for generating renunciation, bodhichitta and right view. REQUIREMENTS: Since this is an Action Tantra practice, participants should refrain from eating the "Black" foods (meat, eggs, onion, garlic and radish) the day of the initiation. COMMITMENTS: There are no particular commitment. However, if possible, it would be good to recite a few mantras daily. BLESSING: You may take this as a blessing only, thereby you are not required to take and keep Bodhisattva Vows. Kyabje Denma Locho Rinpoche was born in Tibet in 1928. He attained his Geshe degree (doctorate in Buddhist studies) and attended Gyume Tantric college. He is a master of the Tantric Yogas. He is one of Choden Rinpoche and Lama Zopa's teachers.
