    called "wang" in Tibetan, and "abhisheka" in Sanskrit. It's a mind to mind transmission that happens when a Buddhist student is introduced to a meditation practice.

    Does that happen in any other tradition?

    IN corporate America the term is often used to try and falsely hype up employees.

    In America, it's when a woman works as a stripper then has an abortion.

    For masters of the corporate venue, it is a spiritual experience.

    In Christianity, it's called repentence. And it occurs when people turn to God and through His grace overcome human weakness step by step until they are sanctified.
