Guru Yoga and Mandala Retreat

18th 19th – December

about this Retreat 

We all wish for spiritual realizations, but these depend upon creating certain inner conditions such as purifying negativity, accumulating merit, and receiving blessings.

In this retreat we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit, or positive energy, by making mandala offerings and receiving powerful blessings by engaging in the Guru Yoga practice of Je Tsongkhapa. 

Je Tsongkhapa, whose ordained name was Losang Dragpa, was a great 14th century Tibetan Buddhist Master who promoted and developed the Kadampa Buddhism that Atisha had introduced three centuries earlier. Mandala offering is an offering of the entire universe visualized as a Pure Land, with all its inhabitants as pure beings.

There will be a teaching on the practice of Guru Yoga and mandala offerings on Friday evening, but the retreat will be unguided and will include chanted prayers and making mandala offerings using a mandala kit or a plate with rice.
