Closer and Closer to Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka ~ January Retreat

with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

Special Close Retreat ~ collecting 100,000 Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka mantras
In the Kadampa Temple at the Mother Centre of the NKT, Manjushri KMC

Gen-la Dekyong will guide this special close retreat following the oral instructions transmitted directly to her from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche and shared at the International NKT Spring Festival 2022 in Málaga. Together in the Kadampa Temple, we will draw closer and closer to our Root Guru, and create very powerful actions that will cause Kadam Dharma to flourish in our hearts and throughout the world. There is no better offering to repay our Guru’s kindness.

The close retreat will include the collection of 100,000 Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka mantras and end with 10,000 mantras of Vajradaka. After completing 100,000 mantras each person can engage in the Vajradaka burning offering, which will take place outside.

The sadhana The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra will be used in the retreat sessions.

The retreat will begin on January 4 in the evening with an introduction at 7.30pm and then there will be 4 sessions each day.
