wang

Empowerment

“Empowerment” or “initiation” are translations of the Tibetan word wang. Of these two terms, “initiation”, though in many ways unsatisfactory, reflects the fact that the wang is the indispensable point of entry into the teaching and practice of the tantras. On the other hand, “empowerment” is closer to the Tibetan word and refers to the transmission of wisdom power from master to disciples, allowing and enabling them to engage in the practice and to reap its fruits.
