Profound Teachings from Buddha's Heart

Portugal Festival 2013 Revisited

In October 2013 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche gave his last public teachings in Portugal.

During these teachings Geshe-la granted the empowerment of Great Mother Prajnaparamita, taught the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (Heart Sutra), which contains the heart essence of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom teachings, and gave commentaries to The Blissful Path, the condensed self-generation sadhana practice of Buddha Vajrayogini and to The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability, the special instruction of how to reach the Pure Land of Vajrayogini with our present human body.

Using Dakini Yoga, Nick will guide the generation stage meditations in this simple, effective daily practice of Buddha Vajrayogini. In this half-day retreat, enjoy becoming familiar with these guided transformational meditations. Through increasing our familiarity we will find it much easier to establish and maintain our own practice.

Please note: To participate in this retreat, you must have received the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini within the New Kadampa Tradition.

Free - everyone is welcome!

A torma is a traditional Buddhist offering that is made to increase our spiritual growth. These offerings are shaped into meaningful forms from almond paste or other sculptable foods, and are offered to the Buddhas in various spiritual practices such as empowerments, retreats and chanted prayers. In this hands-on workshop, Kadam Trina will explain the beautiful meaning and benefits of offering tormas. We will then roll up our sleeves and each make a special torma to be offered on June 4, Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day, which is also Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s birthday. This will be a relaxed, fun and blessed workshop. Please pre-register to help us plan materials. There is a material fee of $10.
