Black Coat Empowerment with Nedo Rinpoche

The grand finale: on the last day of this year’s International Summer Course, Nedo Kuchung Rinpoche gave us the precious empowerment into the main protector of the Karma Kagyu Lineage.

The short invocation of Black Coat (Skt. Mahakala; Tib. Bernagchen), is a sung meditation which is regularly done in the Diamond Way Buddhist centers around the world. The text was composed by the 8th Karmapa Mikyö Dorje (1507–1554). Black Coat embodies the love and protective activity of unlimited space. Whoever recites the text daily is said to become fearless according to the teachings.

With thousands attending, Rinpoche and Lama Ole blessed everybody after the empowerment in just over an hour, circumambulating the central part of the gompa tent.

Thank you so much Rinpoche for your teachings and empowerments, thank you Lama Ole for everything and thank you everybody who made these amazing two weeks full of blessing possible!!!
