Ngondro Retreat


In January, Lama Tsering will give teachings on Ngöndro, the preliminary practices of Vajrayana Buddhism. It is said that learning Ngöndro is similar to learning the alphabet, because although they are so-called “preliminary” practices, they are never abandoned by the practitioner, and are applied throughout the spiritual path, until enlightenment.

This method, if applied diligently, purifies obscurations and negative karma, creating conditions for the practitioner to receive higher teachings - such as those of the Great Perfection. For this reason, this retreat is recommended for all those who wish to commit and dedicate themselves intensely to the spiritual path.

The teachings will last throughout the month of January.
