RETREAT: Ngondro Preliminaries weekend teachings and empowerment - SIBA

 Registration is closed for this event
Teachings and empowerment on the foundation practices of Tantric Tibetan Buddhism.

Have you ever wanted to learn Tibetan Buddhist Tantric Meditation, but not known where to start? This Ngondro retreat is the perfect place to start learning authentic Tibetan Buddhist Tantra.

Ngondro is a Tibetan word for preliminaries and is a foundational Buddhist tantric practice that is suitable for all. These techniques are a complete practice in themselves for stabilising a new tantric practitioner on the path.

The practice of Ngondro is the first tantric practice undertaken as the skilful means for purification of gross negative karma and the accumulation of merit. Without learning these foundations of tantra it is difficult to accumulate wisdom, which is emphasised in the Vajrayana 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

Authentic Tantra relies on a living master to guide each new practitioner with what they need. Lama Choedak Rinpoche will be leading this weekend retreat which is the beginning of the Month-Long Ngondro Practice Retreat beginning on Sunday 2 to Sunday 18 November 2018.
