I know it's a bit late, sorry about this, but it seems that it is a wang and it can't be taken as a blessing.

When did you join? I'm not sure, I'll PM you the commitments if someone knows if you could receive the empowerment.

If you never rejoined then you missed the full empowerment, they didn't take the hour break as scheduled.

I wasn't able to refresh screen. I don't know was it technical failure or did I fall sleep during system error. I listened from bed. I dreamed about listening this ceremony.

I've just remembered there was a technical error after the Bodhisattva vows but that only lasted a minute, you had to refresh the webpage for the video to restore properly. It's not my place to say if you received the empowerment, only you can know really :smile:

It might have worked, I just wasn't trusting my computer :rolling:

I think his holiness decided that it was better to do the empowerment in one go without the break and then distribute the tea and food so it was one session

just in case that you missed the Hayagriva Initiation, they put a video of it next to their
stream on
https://www.dalailama.com/live

klick on the live webcasts button and then you will see a little icon
in the left corner of the video screen - edit: sorry, it's the right upper corner, of course -, a letter box with a little play arrow "Event posts".

You can watch it and listen to the teachings he gave within the empowerment, but you can't take an empowerment from a video recording.

Tantric empowerment aside, neither can the master assess accurately the state of the student's mind for purposes of any pointing out instruction in any essence tradition even via live webcast.
Generally, enjoyment of speech is the gateway to poor [results]. So it becomes the foundation for generating all negative emotional states. Jampel Pawo, The Certainty of the Diamond Mind

????

Of course not, I hope you did not assume that I wanted to suggest such a thing
when mentioning the video recording.

Anyways, I don't think that you relate to my posting at all, as you do not
show any signs of acknowleding me, but anyways, just want to let you know
that I am aware that you can not attain any initiation or empowerment via video.

I like watching the video, no matter what. I guess it will do no harm...
