The practice of Mahakala is important for those who
practice Vajrayana Buddhism because it pacifies
obstacles that arise on the path and interfere with
keeping Vajrayana commitments. It is said that
instructions on the Mahakala practice must be given
by an authentic and qualified Vajra Master. This is a
rare opportunity to receive these teachings on a
practice that is essential for those committed to
Vajrayana Buddhism. Participants must have received
the Mahakala Empowerment.
