WHITE UMBRELLA DEITY INITIATION

-

“The Sanskrit name for the White Umbrella Deity is Ushnisha Sitatapatra [Tib: du kar] which can also be translated as "The Victorious White Parasol." Her parasol indicates her ability to protect sentient beings from natural catastrophes, diseases, and so forth.

She is white in color, because the principal means by which she accomplishes this function is the enlightenment energy of pacification.

Ushnisha Sitatapatra is a female form of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Like him in his elaborate form, she also has a thousand eyes that watch over living beings, and a thousand arms that protect and assist them.

Thus she symbolizes the power of active compassion”

White Umbrella Deity Initiation with Lama Zopa Rinpoche

 

REQUIREMENTS for the initiation:

  • Lama Zopa Rinpoche will check in the days close to the initiation if a great initiation or a jenang would be most beneficial. We will inform by email.
  • The first requirement for initiation is that you have already taken refuge in the Three Jewels.
  • An initiation is based on a master-disciple relationship. It is important to enter into this relationship consciously, as it will last until the end of your life and beyond.
  • Initiation goes hand in hand with a commitment that must be fulfilled, which will probably be known on the weekend of initiation (and which will possibly entail daily recitation of a number of mantras for life)
  • It is important to analyze our motivation for our participation in the initiation.
  • On the day of initiation we will refrain from eating "black foods" such as onions, eggs, garlic, radishes, meat or fish. We must also refrain from consuming tobacco.
  • Another requirement to participate in the initiation is that you are not a Shugden practitioner.
