On Saturday, August 24, Lama Tsering will continue to teach about Ngöndro, the foundation of all Vajrayana Buddhist practice. In order to participate, you must have taken part in the Ngöndro retreat in July, or previously received instructions about the practice.
It is said that learning the Ngöndro is similar to learning the alphabet, as despite being referred to as "preliminary" practices, they are never abandoned by the practitioner, and are applied throughout the spiritual path, until enlightenment.
If diligently applied, this method 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 to all those who wish to commit and dedicate themselves intensely to the spiritual path.
If you wish to stay at the Temple, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
“The Dudjom Tersar Ngondro provides a superb means to open the door to recognizing the nature of mind. I hope that all who undertake it will transcend the rigors of the practices and find true joy in them.”
Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
