Mahakala Empowerment
led by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche

Drikung Kagyu Guru YogaTeachings
led by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche



Mahakala, the Black-coated Protector, is a manifestation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of infinite, all-embracing compassion. Since not all sentient beings can be guided by gentle means and since sometimes strong, even fierce methods are needed to tame these beings, Avalokiteshvara appeared in warthful form, in the form of the “Great Black Protector”.

The activities of Mahakala intent to dissolve the mental confusion of all beings and to protect practitioners from outer, inner, and secret obstacles. These are the four Buddha activities: taming (of obstructive forces), enriching (with wisdom), attracting (supportive conditions) and distroying (harmful, impedimental powers). Mahakala fulfills all wishes that serve and support the final goal, the ultimate liberation of all sentient beings; his means and methods can be very swift, tough, and uncompromising.
