On the Saturday following, Rinpoche will offer empowerment into the Tantra of Kurukulla to qualified persons. A workshop on the practice will follow on Sunday morning. Kurukulla is a wrathful aspect of Tara. She is red, has one face, two eyes, and four arms. She is seen standing on one foot among flames, dancing. She holds a flower-glarland bow and fascinates opponent forces, overcoming them through the power of attraction.
