With this Abhisekha, one receives all of the different levels of Abhisekha rituals to become a master of Abhisekha.


It is written in the “Vairocana Sutra”: “Vajrasattva! (The Diamond-Hand Bodhisattva), if you see anyone having an inborn spiritual ability and who meets the criteria of having deep knowledge and belief, of being detached from the world, of being diligent and hard working and who often thinks of benefiting others, say to him: ‘This is the Dharma, the true doctrine of the Great Vehicle Buddhist School that I only explain to the one who has affinity with the Great Vehicle system. You should use your intelligence as a way to attain Buddhahood and you will certainly succeed’.” The Vajrasekhara Sutra says: “If the Acarya sees anyone who could implement the doctrine, one who is simple, honest, courteous, intelligent, and also has solid faith, even if he does not seek for the doctrine or enter any religious school, the Abhisekha master should tell him: ‘The rites of the secret Sutra of the Great Vehicle Buddhism is rarely heard of. If you want to achieve the genuine wisdom of Buddha, you must devote yourself practicing this doctrine to attain the supreme seed of intelligence of this world’.”
