The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra

The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra


Weekend Retreat

Saturday, Sept. 7 – Sunday, Sept.8, 2019
with Resident Teacher Kelsang Chöyang


This retreat is based on the commentary to the practices of ‘The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra’, given at KMC Manjushri at Summer Festival 2019. It is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the teachings and to progress along the blissful path to enlightenment. We will focus on the five stages of Mahamudra and meditate within the context of the very blessed prayers, 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.
