Vajrakilaya retreat

 In preparation for Losar, the Tibetan New Year, we will hold a retreat from February 6th to 8th, with an emphasis on practicing Vajrakilaya with tsog every day.

The practice of Vajrakilaia helps us remove the obstacles of the past year, paving the way for the new year. It is also known for its power to remove obscurations and hindrances to self-liberation, and to enhance qualities that benefit others, through angry compassion. It is a remedy considered against negative forces, defeating internal emotional poisons.

There is no prerequisite to participate. If you do not have Vajrakilaya empowerment, you can come to the Temple and do your personal practice.

Registration is only necessary for those who wish to stay. It is possible to stay at the Temple between the 6th and 10th, for one or more days within this period. Registration with accommodation closes on the 4th, at noon.

To participate in one or more tsogs you must confirm your presence .

Lama Tsering will consecrate phurbas on the first day of the retreat.

On the 9th, the eve of Losar, we will carry out a major cleaning and organization in different areas of the Temple, with participation open to everyone. See the table below on how to participate.

Attendance only in person.
