How to take refuge in Living Buddha Lian-Sheng PDF Print E-mail
The importance of taking refuge empowerment:

Performing virtuous deeds, chanting and paying homage to Buddhas are important.  In addition, to advance the level of practice, it is necessary to do the inner cultivation which involves a long period of training.  This requires the guidance of a real transcendental Vajra Master who can lead an individual to the right path to achieve results. In order to be a student, one has to take refuge and receive initiation empowerment blessing from the Master.     

In Vajrayana, a person who has received the refuge empowerment from a Vajra Master, also becomes a disciple to the Buddha.  This establishes the path of cultivation toward perfect enlightenment.
Vajrayana practice places heavy importance on refuge and transmission empowerment from the Guru without which, it is quite impossible to achieve any result.

The Keys to Personal Deity Yoga Practice

by Rev. Hiu-jun
Translated [1] by Janny Chow

Grand Master Lu Kurukulla Mudra
All phenomena are inherently non-existent;
Through the Tantric practice of Fire Offerings,
Thoughts of purification, enhancement, magnetization, and subjugation,
Materialize and take shape like fire.

At 10:00 a.m. on September 8th, 1996, before the commencement of the Kurukulla Fire Offering Ceremony at the Redmond Ling Shen Ching Tze Temple, His Holiness Living Buddha Lian-sheng bestowed the above verse upon all of the students present.
