Teachings and empowerment on the foundation practices of Tibetan Buddhism.
The practice of Ngondro is undertaken as the skilful means for purification of gross negative karma and the accumulation of merit, without which the accumulation of wisdom, emphasised in the Vajrayana path, will not be accomplished.
Ngondro is a Tibetan word for preliminaries and is a foundational Buddhist practice suitable for all. These techniques are a compete practice in themselves for stabilising the practitioner on the path.
The retreat will focus on providing the meditator with the empowerments and instructions for the practice of Ngondro including:
- Refuge and Prostrations
- Generation of Bodhicitta
- Vajrasattva Empowerment and mantra recitation
- Mandala Offering
- Guru Yoga
Lama Choedak Rinpoche will be leading this weekend retreat which is the beginning of the Month Long Ngondro Practice Retreat beginning on Sunday 5 to Sunday 3 December 2017.
