Guru Yoga & Mandala Offering Retreat
A Preliminary Guide
with Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Chokyi
SAT, Aug 20 | 9am - 5:30pm
Guru Yoga retreat is one of the four great preliminary guides that we need to practice if we want to gain mahamudra realizations – the quick path to enlightenment.
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 and receiving blessings. Making mandala offerings is the gateway to accumulating the collection of merit and attaining an enlightened pure land and Guru yoga is the gateway to receiving powerful blessings of all the Buddhas of the ten directions through our Spiritual Guide.
There will be four sessions using Offering to the Spiritual Guide chanted prayer booklet. This retreat is for advanced practitioners, and is in person only.
