His Holiness has made it a priority to revitalize the tradition and practice of Hevajra in the Drikung Centers around the world.  Although these days Chakrasamvara is more commonly practiced as the main yidam by most Kagyü followers, Hevajra was in fact the main yidam of our lineage master, Marpa (1012-1097) and his wife Dakmema; both in fact considered to be Hevajra and Nairātmyā (Hevajra’s consort) in person.

Hevajra with consort represents the marriage of compassion and wisdom. Hevajra’s 16 arms represent the 16 ways of describing emptiness, his 8 faces, the 8 ways towards liberation; the 4 legs, the 4 boundless minds. His 8 right hands which carry animals in skullcups represent the overcoming of the 8 types of diseases. His 8 left hands carry 8 deities, representing the accomplishment of the 8 powers. Hevajra is trampling over the 4 Maras, representing the 4 types of defilement.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to receive such an important transmission from the head of one of the surviving Kagyü lineages.  We hope that you can join us.

Cost: $170 for the entire weekend.  $130 for empowerment only.
Sliding scale or work study may be available.

An online registration page will be available soon.
