Please note: Heruka and Vajrayogini Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments are required for this retreat. If you have not already received these empowerments they will be granted by Gen-la Dekyong at the NKT Summer Festival 2018.
A wonderful opportunity to spend a weekend deepening your understanding of the profound and joyful Highest Yoga Tantra practices. The weekend will emphasize on gaining heartfelt experience of these sublime practices so that we can integrate them into daily life.
This guided retreat will be based on Gen-la Dekyong’s commentary of the Summer Festival.
- Leave behind this ordinary world of suffering and enter the Pure Land.
- Learn special methods to transform every daily activity into a meditation on the union of bliss and emptiness.
“As times become ever more impure we will receive the blessings and special care of Heruka and Vajrayogini more quickly, and through this we will attain realizations easily and quickly.” – Excerpt from the book The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
