Take the precious opportunity this long weekend, to engage in Tantric Mahamudra practices that lead to the union of great bliss and emptiness, and the attainment of enlightenment in one short life. This retreat is based on the instructions of the uncommon practice of Tantric Mahamudra of the Ganden Oral lineage as explained in the book The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. We will focus on the five stages of Mahamudra and meditate within the context of the very blessed prayers called The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra.
To participate, students need a Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment or a sincere wish to receive one in the near future. Please see http://kadampafestivals.org/summer for more information.
Participants will need a copy of the Prayer Booklet, The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra. If you need to purchase a copy of this booklet, you'll have the opportunity to do so when you reach the registration page for this retreat. We'll then notify you when it's ready to be picked up from our mailbox at Joyful Land Centre. Alternatively, an e-copy can be downloaded from tharpa.com .
We should try gradually to increase the frequency of our peaceful minds until they remain with us all day long.
