Mahakala-Days

Mahakala, "The Great Black One", is the protector of the Kagyüpas. As last year, this February's Mahakala Days will be broadcast live from Kamalashila Institute.

Mahakala, “The Great Black One”, is the protector of the Kagyüpas. He embodies the wrathful aspect of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion. His main duties in relation to external and internal obstacles are taming and subduing. The annual protector practice serves to purify the ending year of all obstacles and negativities, thus ensuring a positive start to the new year. As last year, this February’s Mahakala Days will be broadcast live from Kamalashila Institute.
