Vajra Yogini Daju or self initiation
Recently I had monk friends from Gaden visit me. They had assisted me in the Vajra Yogini Self initiation rite that I had needed to do.
Extensive tormas and preparations were done. And the self initiation itself took around 7 glorious hours.
Self initiation purifies ones vows taken before, mends them, re affirms them, and powerful to purify many downfalls in general that prevent attainments from one’s practice. Also you may retake your mantra count commitment if it was broken.
You plant the 4 types of initiations into one’s mindstream. It is necessary for the Lama also to do daju prior to conferring Vajra Yogini’s initiation to others.
It is a powerful tantric practice to restore one’s practice from time to time to assure success in one’s sadhanas.
I am indeed fortunate that I was able to obtain this sacred practice from my enlightened master with full commentary and oral transmission. In the future, many of my students will engage in this sacred practice when the time is right. It is the most appropriate practice for people of this time.
It was indeed an honour and great blessing for me to do the daju. I felt extremely happy and blissful.
