Join us on Thursday, 28th September 2023 for a potent ritual of protection and cleansing. The Yamantaka protection blessing, known as kago in Tibetan, is a powerful rite based on the Yamantaka tantras to protect us by sealing the various chakras in our body.
Chakras are points where our psychic energies converge. They are also openings through which harmful entities can enter to negatively affect us. The kago ritual helps to close these ‘doorways’, and requests Yamantaka and his entourage to stand guard at each point.
You are encouraged to attend this puja in person. During the ritual, you will have the opportunity to directly receive an individual blessing if time allows.
The puja will be conducted by visiting Sangha from Shar Gaden, Serpom, Phelgyeling and Segyu monasteries, alongside high lamas and esteemed geshes.

Who is Yamantaka?
Yamantaka is a wrathful manifestation of Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Stainless Wisdom. His profound practice is one of the three Kingly Tantras of the Gelug Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and utilises anger as a means to purify delusions. It offers a profound and quick method to achieve higher attainments, and has the potential to purify tremendous amounts of negative karma, especially those of the most heinous crimes. He also grants powerful protection against the most wrathful spirits, black magic and curses.
