Following the recent Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments, many Kadampa students around the world may engage in close retreats of Heruka and Vajrayogini, during which they collect a certain number of mantras. This Fire Puja held at KMC Australia is for those who have successfully completed counting 100,000 Varayogini mantras in a close retreat.
To complete such a retreat it is necessary to perform a burning offering, or fire puja, of fulfilling the commitment of close retreat. This practice purifies any mistakes we may have made during our retreat. In Ornament of Vajra Essence Tantra it says, “All faults of excess and omission in Secret Mantra are redressed by a burning offering."
Please note: this event is only for those who have received their Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerments.
