*This month retreat is only for those who have received the Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment of Vajrayogini
This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in the mantra counting retreat of Vajrayogini. The retreat involves counting 100,000 Vajrayogini Mantras over four weeks. Through reciting this mantra we come closer to Vajrayogini, both in the sense of making a connection with a special friend and in the sense of actually becoming the Deity Vajrayogini. This mantra purifies our mind of negativities, increases the power of our speech, and pacifies inner and outer obstacles such as sickness and strong delusions.
“Merely by reciting the mantra you can accomplish attainments, and complete all actions perfectly. This, the king of mantras, causes the completion of every action. There is no mantra more supreme than this in all the three realms. This is the essence of all Dakinis. By merely remembering this mantra you will accomplish all the attainments.” – Vajradhara, the Root Tantra of Heruka.
