Live Webcasts: the Dalai Lama’s Avalokiteshvara Empowerment

On 29-30 May 2020, there will be live webcasts of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's two days Avalokiteshvara Empowerment. People are requested to follow social distancing rules while viewing the live webcast.

Since the initiation refers to the Kriya Tantra, it is recommended to refrain from eating animal meat (lamb, pork, fish, chicken and so on), eggs and alcoholic beverages, at least from the evening of 28 May until the end of the initiation.

 According to information from the office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, His Holiness believes that the most important thing for receiving this initiation is motivation. According to him, those who for some reason cannot watch the live broadcast will be able to receive initiation by

watching the broadcast in the recording if they are properly motivated.
