Sadhana Intensive in the Great Stupa
Join us as we immerse ourselves in the vivid world of Vajrayogini, exploring the richness of yidam practice. A treasure of the Kagyu lineage, this sadhana holds the power to awaken and transform our lives. Emotional and conceptual obscurations are burned in Vajrayogini’s fiery wisdom, and her unblinking gaze awakens our capacity for limitless awareness. Special attention will be placed on coemergent mahamudra and the practice of ordinary mind. This sadhana intensive, appropriate for all levels of Vajrayogini practitioners, is a celebration of the heart of our Vajrayana community and culture. Practicing in the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya can be truly transformative.
Prerequisite: Vajrayogini Abhisheka
