Vajrakilaya Amending the Four Karmas Fire Offering

The wrathful deity Vajrakilaya embodies the enlightened activity of all the buddhas, and his practice is known for being the most powerful for removing obstacles, destroying the forces hostile to compassion and purifying the spiritual pollution so prevalent in this age.

For those who have completed the Vajrakilaya retreat practice, the Four Karmas Fire Offering provides the opportunity to connect further with the wisdom mandala of Vajrakilaya and to engage more fully in all the karmas — the enlightened activities of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and destroying.

Who Can Attend

To attend this Four Karmas fire offering, you must have completed the Vajrakilaya retreat — either by number of mantras or by time.  If you completed by mantras, the Amending fire offering should be completed before attending this retreat.  (This program will not “count” as an Amending fire offering.)

Required Texts

The fire offering text for this program will be Quick Accomplishment of Buddha Activity.  It is specific to the Netik Phurba and different from the text used for Vajrayogini and Chakrasamvara fire offerings.  The liturgy is available for purchase from the NalandaTranslation Committee.

In addition to the Netik Phurba full retreat text, you will need the The Essential Daily Yoga text.
