A Great Preliminary Guide Retreat

November 23rd – 24th | Self Guided with Introduction

Guru yoga is a special and powerful method that enables us to receive the blessings of all the holy beings. Offering the mandala is the best method for freeing ourself from future poverty and for creating the cause of rebirth in a Buddha's Pure Land. We all have many seeds of Dharma realizations within our consciousness: seeds for gaining realizations of lasting inner peace, compassion, bodhichitta, and wisdom realizing ultimate truth.

Receiving blessings from holy beings nurtures these seeds to grow and ripen. Blessings are essential to attain true and lasting happiness, and the protection of Dharma realizations in our mind; we practice Guru yoga to receive Buddha’s blessings.

Everyone is welcome. Although this is technically an advanced course, beginners are welcome to participate. If you are new to this practice or need more information, contact:
