"The sanskrit equivalent for initiation is abhisheka, meaning 'sprinkle', 'pour', 'anointment'. And if there is pouring, there must be a vessel into which the pouring can fall. So at last we might really give up all these complications and just allow some space, just give in. This is the moment when abhisheka - sprinkling and pouring - really takes place, because we are open and arenreally giving up the whole attempt to do anything, giving up all the busyness and overcrowding. Finally we have been forced to really stop properly, which is quite a rare occurrence for us."

-from Chogyam Trungpa's Cutting Through Spritiual Materialism
