In the Western Buddhist Order the point at which the essence of Dharma is formally transmitted is the private ordination ceremony. The preceptor introduces the person being ordained to one of the forms of the Awakened mind associated with our tradition. They are given an associated meditation practice known as a sadhana, and a Dharma name.

This material is a little out of date. I teach in a somewhat different way now (and, I think, better) but I don't have any of the newer stuff in written form yet. I will post it here when I do.
