Empowerment

Tibetan: དབང (wang)     Chinese: 灌頂
An empowerment is a Vajrayana ritual which a qualified guru initiates and gives permission to a student into a tantric practice. It plants a seed into the mind of the student, the potential for Buddhahood and to create connections to the guru and to the deity.
