Guru Yoga & Mandala Offering Retreat

Saturday, June 29th
10am - 3:30pm

with Kelsang Tharden 

$25 | Member benefits apply

Guru yoga is an especially powerful method for receiving the blessings of the Buddhas and increasing our merit. By following the Sutra path alone it would take a thousand aeons to accumulate the vast amount of merit needed to attain Buddhahood, but, as Sakya Pandita observed, by wholeheartedly practicing Guru yoga we can accumulate the same amount of merit in the brief span of one human life.

If we understand the role of imagination, born from an understanding of karma and intention, we can create the self and world we wish to experience through engaging in the practice of mandala offerings.

Schedule:
Session 1: 10:00 - 11:15am
Session 2: 11:45am - 1:00pm
Break: 1:00 - 2:15pm
Session 3: 2:15 - 3:30pm
