The Essence of the Empowerment Chapter *

By Kalki Manjushri Yashas and Jetsun Taranatha
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.
