An Introduction to the Generation Stage Practice Of Vajrayogini*

In this series of practice-based classes we'll engage in the self-generation practice of Buddha Vajrayogini in conjunction with the condensed sadhanas “The Blissful Path” and “Quick Path to Great Bliss”. We'll cover topics like the nineteen commitments of the five Buddha Families, the three bringings, blessing the inner offering, meditation on the body mandala, practicing Vajrayogini in daily life and more!

*Please Note:

This is a series open only to those who meet the qualification of having received the HYT Empowerment. If you have a sincere interest to do so in the near future and have a solid foundation in Kadampa Buddhist teachings and practice, you can speak with Kadam Matthew about the possibility of attending these classes. Otherwise, please join our weekly general program classes or other Saturday workshops and retreats.
