Tantric Mahamudra practices lead to a union of bliss and emptiness, enabling us to attain enlightenment in one short life. This weekend retreat is based on the instructions of the uncommon practice of Tantric Mahamudra as explained in the book The Oral Instructions of the Mahamudra by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. We will focus on the five stages as outlined in the retreat schedule and meditate within the context of the very blessed prayers called The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra.
