The Essence of the Empowerment Chapter

This text contains verses from the third chapter of the Abridged Tantra in which Manjushri Yashas describes the procedures for entering into the Kalachakra Mandala through Tantric Empowerment. This process authorises a tantric practitioner to engage in the practices detailed in later chapters. This essential summary was composed with verses extracted from the Jonang translation created by Kunkhyen Dolpopa and his students and later arranged by Jetsun Taranatha.
